Goalkeeper’s stay with the Terriers extended
- Jed Steer's loan at Huddersfield Town extended
- Aston Villa goalkeeper staying until 11 November
- Reaction from HTAFC Manager Chris Powell
Huddersfield Town has today extended the Emergency Loan spell of Jed Steer from Aston Villa until 11 November 2015 inclusive.
Huddersfield Town Manager Chris Powell explained:
“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.”
This extension makes Jed eligible for the Club’s next six Sky Bet Championship games, beginning with Saturday’s away fixture at Ipswich Town and ending with the West Yorkshire derby at home to Leeds United on 7 November.
Admission to Town’s next home game vs MK Dons on 20 October is just £10 adults at the gate!
