Dean Smith and Aston Villa have already been very busy during this summer’s transfer window, and they have now added another new face to their ranks. Today’s Villa transfer roundup includes this confirmed deal, Premier League interest in one of the club’s star midfielders and the pursuit of a former Borussia Dortmund forward.
It has today been confirmed that left-back Matt Targett has joined Aston Villa from Southampton. The 23-year-old told the club’s official website, “Aston Villa is a club on the up, definitely. Dean, the gaffer, is building something special here.”
The Sun is reporting that Manchester United are interested in signing midfielder John McGinn this summer. However, the Scottish international will cost United £50m, with the Villans very reluctant to sell the 24-year-old.
Aston Villa are interested in signing 21-year-old Turkish winger Emre Mor according to the Sun. The player is currently at Celta Vigo, who may even be willing to let him go for free. Norwich and Sheffield United are also looking at the player.
