25-year-old goalkeeper Jed Steer had a 2017/18 season to forget with injuries limiting him to just four appearances across the campaign.

He’s actually only made eight appearances for us since his arrival from Norwich City but he spent a good spell out on loan with Huddersfield Town twice, Yeovil Town and Doncaster Rovers during his time at the club.

With Pierluigi Gollini heading out the door and Villa getting no payback for training up Sam Johnstone as he joined West Bromwich Albion the other day, he is technically our only senior stopper now. Mark Bunn is supposedly out of contract and had been on our released list but he’s training with the side out in Portugal so I’m guessing he’s staying as well.

Having dislocated his shoulder in his last appearance for us, Peterborough in the FA Cup last January, he’s now back out on the pitch building himself back up and with money tight at Villa Park this summer, Steer’s early promise between the sticks leaves him incredibly well placed to make the spot his own, get his Villa career really and up and running and give manager Steve Bruce one less headache as he looks to build a squad that will have to at least challenge for promotion next year, regardless of what goes on off the pitch.

Have posted the above Tweet to his account over the weekend, some fans are backing him to confidently step up this season.

  • I watched our last friendly, and sorry to say I wasn’t at all convinced by Steer his distribution is very poor and his kicking into touch wasn’t good either no where near decisive enough for leauge games. I stand to be corrected it’s just my own opinion I would like to be proven wrong but I don’t think so.
    I hope to see de late in our starting line up he was our best player by a country mile and yes Jack was playing.
    Loads of media talk about Henry bit teed off with it to be honest, but there’s nothing we fans can do we have to accept and get behind whoever our new investors choose, we have to lower our expectations and look to the future,which is a lot brighter now than it was a week ago.
    Finally as for Bruce it doesn’t bother me however it goes but maybe a complete fresh start would be good.

  • Before anyone points it out, yes de laet is spelt wrong in my previous posting it’s predictive texting .
