Jed Steer: Norwich want compensation from Aston Villa for goalkeeper

Steer is set to link up with former Canaries manager Paul Lambert at Villa when his contract expires on July 1, but Norwich want some financial reward for the 20-year-old's development.

Norwich chief executive David McNally said: "Jed is an excellent young keeper with a bright future ahead of him and was very much part of our plans for next season and beyond.

"We offered him a good new contract, but it looks like he has opted to sign for Aston Villa instead.

"We are obviously disappointed to be losing the services of a very promising young England international keeper and will be seeking substantial compensation from Villa."

Steer made two FA Cup appearances for Norwich in the 2011/12 season, and has also had loan spells with Cambridge United and Yeovil Town.
