Aston Villa fans send support to goalkeeper Steer following injury blow

Aston Villa goalkeeper Jed Steer has been struggled to secure a regular spot in the team ever since his move to the Midlands outfit from Norwich City in 2013.

The 25-year-old has had loan spells at Doncaster Rovers, Yeovil Town and Huddersfield Town over the last few years.

This season, Steer has remained at Villa Park, but has played second fiddle to Sam Johnstone, who is on loan from Manchester United.

So far, the shot-stopper has made just four appearances, all of which were across the Carabao Cup and FA Cup.

It seems that his campaign may be over already after he suffered ligament damage in his shoulder during an FA Cup match against Peterborough earlier this month.

On Wednesday, Steer underwent surgery and later posted a message to Twitter, insisting that he is looking ahead at the road to recovery.

In response, Villa fans flooded the goalkeeper’s social media page with messages of support.
