Aston Villa penalty hero Steer could be in line for international callup with Scotland

Jed Steer’s Aston Villa performances have reportedly attracted the attention of Scotland over a potential international call-up.

Aston Villa goalkeeper Jed Steer is being considered for an international call-up by Scotland, according to a report by the Scottish Sun.

They report that the 26-year-old is on the radar of the managerless Scots after the way he has impressed since breaking into the Villa first team earlier this year.

Steer apparently played for England between the youth age groups of under 16 and under 19 but as he remains uncapped by the senior Three Lions side, he could play for Scotland.

Scotland actually have a reasonably talented crop of players coming through, but they need to be moulded into a team with a clear identity and goal threat.

But Steer may yet become a Premier League goalkeeper by the end of the month and the fact that Jack Butland, who has just finished in the Championship wilderness with Stoke, gets called up by Gareth Southgate indicates a lack of goalkeeping depth for the Three Lions.

The landscape is always changing – just ask Nick Pope – and Steer may prefer to bide his time and wait for the Three Lions.
