Goalkeeper Jed Steer has settled in well with a 'great group' of players after making his debut against Cambridge United last weekend.

Having joined on Deadline Day, Steer then travelled to Swansea with the team before keeping a clean sheet as the Hatters progressed into the fifth round of the Emirates FA Cup.

Following a whirlwind start to life at Luton Town, the goalkeeper admitted: "When Luton firmed up their interest, it was a no brainer for me. I haven’t played loads, I played a couple of cup games and one game in the Premier League so I’m desperate to play football.

"The option was there to go out on loan and that’s what I’ve done, fingers crossed I can help Luton achieve what they want to this season."

The 29-year-old has now linked up with Harry Isted and James Shea, the latter of which he played against in his younger days.

"I’ve played against Sheasy for a long time back in the day when I was at Norwich and he was at Arsenal, we used to play U18s and reserve games against each other, so I’ve always known Sheasy and followed his career.

"Everyone’s been great, the goalie area is a great area to work in and be involved in, both the Kevs have been fantastic, so it’s a really good group and we’re all working well together."

The life of a goalkeeper can be a frustrating one but the Villa loanee is ready to work hard to get the number one spot.

"Unfortunately, with the goalies, only one of you can play. A lot of the time you have to be patient. 

"At Villa, we have Emmy (Emiliano Martinez), who’s been unbelievable. I’ve learnt loads off Emmy and we work really well together, but he’s one of the best goalkeepers in the world. 

"It was great working with him, but it’s tough mentally. You’ve got to get your head around if you’ve not got the shirt you’ve always got to be ready. A lot of the time, an opportunity is just around the corner.

"I’ve been here for a few weeks and it feels like I’ve been here a lot longer.

"The initial walking into the building is like your first day of school, everyone wants to come out and introduce themselves, but when you know a few of them, you can sit with them and get involved with the conversation a bit easier, it’s always handy."
