Norwich City will seek “substantial compensation” for goalkeeper Jed Steer, the club’s chief executive said on Thursday.
Aston Villa announced on Wednesday that the 20-year-old had agreed to join the club upon the expiry of his contract, but as the player is under 24 years of age Norwich will be due compensation.
And David McNally confirmed that the club expect significant financial remuneration for the player’s services.
“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,” McNally told the club’s official website.
“We offered him a good new contract but it looks like he has opted to sign for Aston Villa instead.
“We’re obviously disappointed to be losing the services of a very promising young England international keeper and will be seeking substantial compensation from Villa.”
Steer, who is an England Youth and Schoolboy international, has previously enjoyed loan spells at Yeovil Town and Cambridge United.
