Aston Villa: Fans react to Newcastle’s Matt Targett enquiry

Aston Villa: Fans react to Newcastle’s Matt Targett enquiry -Aston Villa

Newcastle United have made an enquiry for Aston Villa left-back Matt Targett.

That’s according to 90min, and their update has had a number of Villa fans talking on social media.

How much should Villa demand for Targett?







Targett has been a regular for Steven Gerrard in recent months, missing just two games under the Villa boss. The 26-year-old signed a new Villa Park contract last year through to 2025 but could now be second choice following Lucas Digne’s arrival.

Targett dropped to the bench against Manchester United last weekend for Digne to make his debut after his move from Everton, and it seems as if Newcastle are keen on the Englishman as a result.

90min revealed on Wednesday that the Magpies have approached Villa over a possible move for Targett, who could now be available to leave the Midlands.

“No way does Targett get sold. You don’t solve a problem then unsolve it immediately. Summer may be a different matter”

“Crazy to sell him as we can’t just have Ash. Matt is great backup and would hope he wants to fight for his place rather than go elsewhere!”

“No. Targett is ahead of Young on the pecking order for LB by a long shot. It would be silly for him to be sold.”

“We want a squad now. So he has to stay unless he wants to go.”
