Aston Villa’s squad is full of Championship-calibre footballing talent, even on the bench. That’s perhaps best exemplified by one Jed Steer.
Jed, not in the picture at Villa during their relegation season, was loaned out to now Premier League Huddersfield and made a bunch of appearances for the Terriers. He missed out at Villa last season through injuries, but he’s come back and has his best chance in years at making some kind of impact - not that we are expecting anything at all from him!
However, Steer is now second in the pecking order, behind the recently injured Sam Johnstone. We’re expecting Steer to start games in the cups for Villa, but apart from that, he will need to wait for the misfortune of others before he starts.
This isn’t to say that Steer is bad, he’s anything but! He’s always performed decently for Villa and is better than Mark Bunn. The problem is, Steer’s time at Villa is coming to a close.
