This season has been one with loads of ups and downs for the Villa fans. The main down was when Jack Grealish was out injured, but now that he’s back the side has been firing. Unfortunately, his return coincided with Jed Steer’s return and somewhat overshadowed it, yet now that the 26-year-old has extended his contract the Villains are delighted.

The news of Steer’s contract has come as news to celebrate for the Villa Park faithful. Steve Bruce loaned out the goalkeeper back in the summer to Charlton in League One. However, as soon as the chance to bring Steer back to Villa Park presented itself, new Villa boss Dean Smith took it, and what a decision that has been as the goalkeeper has been in inspired form.
Steer has been the third goalkeeper that has had a spell in the side for the Villains, and so far he’s been the best as far as the fans are concerned. Both Orjan Nyland and Lovre Kalinic have tried and failed to make their mark on the team and now that the news has come from Matt Maher of The Express and Star that their goalkeeper will be staying at the club for an extra season, the fans are all delighted.

Great news to hear, the lad should never have been loaned out by Bruce in the first place

Absolutely zero need to go overseas for keepers when we produce so many brilliant ones from grassroots. Fully deserved @JedSteer
