Jed Steer: A year ago I thought it was over – I'm over the moon to be staying

Jed Steer says he is delighted to have extended his contract with Aston Villa – something he could never have imagined 10 months ago.

The goalkeeper put pen-to-paper on a new deal on Thursday which will see him remain at the club until 2023.

And after being loaned out last August and spending half a season in League One with Charlton Athletic, Steer admits remaining here for another four years is something he could never have imagined possible.

He said: "It's great to have extended my contract.

"I've been here since 2013 and staying here is something I've always wanted to do. I'm really happy.

"Last season was brilliant – the lead up to the Play-Off Final was fantastic.

"To get promoted and then sign a new deal was the target and I'm thankful to have been able to do it.

"When I got told last August I could go out on loan I thought that was my Villa career probably over.

"To be sitting here now and about to embark on the Premier League with Aston Villa is something I couldn't have imagined. I'm over the moon."
