Matt Targett, a left-back from Aston Villa, has become Newcastle United’s first permanent acquisition of the summer.

Targett, along with January addition Dan Burn, helped shore up Newcastle’s left flank, demonstrating why the Magpies were so anxious to capture the defender on a permanent basis.
Prior to Newcastle’s last Premier League game of the season, Howe praised Targett’s attitude, manners, and consistency during his loan term.
Howe remarked before Newcastle’s 2-1 win against Burnley on the last day of the season, “He’s been magnificent.”
“I believe the highest praise I can offer any loan player is that I consider him an important component of the team.” His demeanor, demeanor, performances, and consistency have all been exceptional.
“He’s someone we genuinely like. I believe he’s gelled with the group and is really popular in this place, so I can’t say enough good things about him.”
Newcastle should be able to spend the majority of their summer budget on other positions as a result of Targett’s acquisition. Renan Lodi of Atletico Madrid was linked with a transfer to Tyneside, although his fee would have been more than double that of Targett’s.
Targett was definitely eager to make the transfer as well.
The defender stated after Newcastle’s 2-0 triumph against Arsenal in their home finale: “The supporters have been wonderful, as I mentioned a few weeks ago. I’ve enjoyed every second of it; it’s been an amazing location to play football, and I’ve enjoyed every minute of it.
“Everyone knows what I want, but the club has the final say. It’s a huge, exciting endeavor that I’m sure everyone wants to be a part of.
