Aston Villa loanee Jed Steer wants to extend stay at Yeovil

Aston Villa stopper Jed Steer wants to remain at Yeovil Town until the end of the season.

Aston Villa goalkeeper Jed Steer has told the Western Daily Press that he is hoping to see his loan spell at Yeovil Town extended until the end of the season.

Steer's current deal expires at the end of the month, but he is hoping that an agreement can be reached between Yeovil and Villa in the near future.

"I've really loved my time here so far and I'd love to stay until the end of the season and get us out of this bit of trouble at the moment," he said.

"I think it's obviously down to the clubs at the moment to speak – and that's obviously if Yeovil want to do it until the end of the season. Hopefully they do and then it would be down to the two clubs to negotiate that.

"Obviously my last game and the last day of my actual loan is the Peterborough game. Hopefully it will all get sorted before that, but we'll just have to wait and see."

Steer has been a regular in Yeovil's line-up since signing and has impressed between the sticks.

The 22-year-old has shown his Premier League class down in the lower-leagues since linking up with the Glovers back in November.

This is actually Steer's second loan move of the season, with his first being to Doncaster Rovers, and he is clearly becoming accustomed to playing first-team football.

His chances of doing so in the foreseeable future at Villa appear limited, though, due to Brad Guzan's command over the goalkeeper spot and, as a result, extending his loan move could suit all parties.

If Steer does stay at Yeovil, he will be required to help the side out of a relegation fight. Gary Johnson's men are currently 23rd in the League One table and will require a big improvement if they are to get out of trouble.
