Terriers Extend Steer Loan

Jed Steer

Goalkeeper to stay at Huddersfield Town until November 11.

Huddersfield Town have extended the emergency loan spell of Jed Steer from Aston Villa until 11 November 2015 inclusive.

Initially brought in for one month on 11 September as a result of a calf injury to Joe Murphy, the 23 year-old goalkeeper has subsequently started all five Sky Bet Championship games – including the Club’s back-to-back wins in 2015/16 at Charlton Athletic and against Bolton Wanderers.

Huddersfield Town manager Chris Powell said: "Joe Murphy is returning from his calf injury and is in full training, but has only played for 45 minutes in last week’s behind-closed-doors friendly at Manchester City during the last month.

"We need to be careful not to bring him back too early. As a result, I believe extending Jed’s loan was the right thing to do.

"Jed has performed very well for us during his month at the Club. He’s looked right at home in his first games in the Championship and I believe he’s deserved at least one clean sheet, if not more.

"Waiting to extend Jed’s loan until this point maximises the number of games that he can play now the international break has ended."
