Aston Villa fans tip Steer for strong season

There is an opening at Aston Villa for the number one goalkeeping position following the departure of Sam Johnstone.

Johnstone spent last season on loan at Villa from Manchester United, but the club’s failure to secure promotion from the Championship meant that they were unable to sign the stopper on a permanent deal.

Johnstone has since moved on to West Bromwich Albion, but the Villa supporters feel that they have a ready-made replacement in Jed Steer.

Steer has been with Villa since 2013, but has only ever made seven first-team appearances for the club.

The 25-year-old has spent time on loan at Doncaster Rovers, Yeovil Town and Huddersfield Town in recent seasons, but the Villa fans want the former England Under-19 international to be given the opportunity to replace Johnstone between the sticks.

Villa’s financial problems have left the club in a difficult position, but they were back in pre-season training this week as the new Championship campaign draws ever closer.
