Left-back Targett, 22, a former England Under-21 international, has made 42 appearances in all competitions for Southampton. “I’m really happy to be here,” Targett told Fulham’s official website. “I’m looking forward to helping the side push on to the play-offs. “One of the main reasons I joined is that club is in a great place at the moment and the results have been fantastic. I can’t wait to be a part of that.”
Newcastle have been linked with a shock move for former Sunderland goalkeeper Simon Mignolet during the summer.
