New Signing | Jed Steer joins on loan!

We are delighted to announce the arrival of goalkeeper Jed Steer on loan until the end of the season.

The 29-year-old started his career with Norwich City in 2010 before going out on loan for the first time in the 2011-12 season to Yeovil Town, where he played alongside, and was coached by Nathan Jones.

He also spent time on loan at this Saturday’s FA Cup opponents, Cambridge United, before being signed by Aston Villa in 2013 to become their back-up goalkeeper in the Premier League.

The former England youth international had further loan spells at Doncaster Rovers, Huddersfield Town and, most recently in 2018, Charlton Athletic, but was brought back into Villa’s set-up at the start of 2019.

Steer went on to play a vital role in helping Villa gain promotion to the Premier League, including saving two penalties in the play-off semi-final shootout against West Brom and playing in the 2-1 Wembley win over Derby. 

He has played three times this season, including once in the Premier League against Chelsea in the absence of Emi Martinez, and joined up with the Hatters in time to train today before travelling to south Wales for tomorrow night’s game at Swansea.

Speaking just before heading out to train, the new number 25 told lutontown.co.uk: “I know Henri and James Bree from Villa, I played with Bez years ago at Cambridge and even the gaffer when I first went to Yeovil, so it’s nice to see a few familiar faces.

“I’ve played against Sheasy quite a bit as well, and he’s a great goalkeeper and person, so I’m sure I won’t have any problems settling in.

“It’s been a bit of a whirlwind day having been in at the Villa training ground this morning, then getting down the M1 in time for training. But I can’t wait to get out on the grass, then jump on the coach to Swansea and get to know everyone else.

“I’ve been watching Luton’s progress from afar with interest. Knowing a couple of the lads here you always do, and I’ve been impressed with what I’ve seen. It’s been a great rise up the Football League in recent seasons.

“I’ve come to help the club continue that as much as I can. I had the best day of my life playing in the play-off final for Aston Villa, and I want to replicate that. I’d love to push on, get up into that top six and have another crack at it.”
