Norwich City will seek considerable compensation for young goalkeeper Jed Steer.

The 20-year old will join Aston Villa on July 1 on a free transfer but the Canaries want some sort of remuneration after helping develop him into a promising young gloveman.

"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,” said Norwich chief executive David McNally.

"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."
