Aston Villa talent Jed Steer reacts after signing new contract extension

Trinity Road Stand - Aston Villa

Aston Villa's Jed Steer has signed a new contract with the club.

Aston Villa goalkeeper Jed Steer has signed a new contract with the club, and told their official website that he is delighted to committed his future to Villa.

Steer, 23, came up through the ranks with Norwich City, and joined his former Canaries boss Paul Lambert at Villa Park in the summer of 2013.

Since making the move to Villa, Steer has played just four games, and has spent most of his time out on loan, with spells at Doncaster Rovers, Yeovil Town and now Huddersfield Town.

Steer joined Huddersfield as a replacement for Alex Smithies last month, and has become a key part of Chris Powell's side at the John Smith's Stadium, featuring on a regular basis for the Terriers.

Still touted as one for the future, Steer will be hoping to make an impact at Villa sooner rather than later, and his new contract shows just how highly rated he is at Villa Park.

As confirmed on the club's official website, Steer has not only put pen-to-paper on a new contract at Villa Park until 2019, but he has also signed an extension to his loan stay at Huddersfield - and Steer admitted that he is delighted with how everything has panned out.

"I am delighted to commit my future here at Villa," said Steer. "It's a fantastic place to be - but I am also enjoying getting regular football at Huddersfield Town too. It's been good for my football education. Today's been a good day and I'm focused on pushing forward now," he added.

With question marks over the future of Brad Guzan, and no long-term plans involving Mark Bunn, Steer can certainly put himself in the frame at Villa Park by impressing in the Championship - and the new deal gives him a little more time to prove his point.
