Steer extends his Norwich City contract, then heads to Yeovil on loan
Thursday was a busy day for highly-rated young Canaries goalkeeper Jed Steer, who had his contract extended by a year – and joined Yeovil Town on a three-month loan.
Steer, 18, has played twice for the Somerset club in friendlies recently, impressing manager Terry Skiverton with his performances against Bristol City and Cardiff.
The England Under-19 international, a product of the Canaries Academy system, is now tied to the Carrow Road club until 2013.
Though manager Paul Lambert is keen for him to get senior league action to help him develop he has also made sure he's available for the Canaries at any time with a 24-hour recall clause included in the contract.
Skiverton was delighted by his capture saying: 'I love him. I think he is a great player and he has pulled out two or three great saves in two games. He kicks very well and he is a calming influence at the back.

While final details were being put on Steer's move to Huish Park, midfielder Owain Tudur Jones was reportedly signing a one-year deal with Scottish Premier League side Inverness Caledonian Thistle, managed by former Ipswich Town defender Terry Butcher.
The 26-year-old Wales international midfielder joined City two years ago from Swansea for �250,000.
He made just five league appearances for City, starting just once under manager Paul Lambert, who sent him out on loan to Yeovil, twice, and Brentford.
Jones, who has capped six times by Wales, has come to the Highland Capital after a spell at English Premiership new boys Norwich. Tudur Jones could now make his debut against Hibernian on Saturday.
