Huddersfield Town have signed goalkeeper Jed Steer on a 28-day Emergency Loan deal from Premier League club Aston Villa.

The deal runs until Thursday 8 October inclusive.

The Norwich-born ‘keeper came through the ranks at his hometown club having joined the Canaries as schoolboy. He signed a professional contract at Norwich in 2010. During his time there he had two loan spells making 16 appearances for Yeovil and Cambridge collectively.

In June 2013 he made a reported £450,000 move to his current club Aston Villa to join Brad Guzan and Shay Given, signed by Paul Lambert. He has had recent loan spells at Doncaster Rovers and a second spell at Yeovil Town, both in League 1. He made 13 appearances for Doncaster and 12 for Yeovil last season.

I am really happy to welcome Jed to the Club. He is a young talented goalkeeper who has had some experience out on loan. He has played for two different Premier League clubs and at youth level for his country and we hope that his month with us is successful in every way possible.

The 27 year-old winger’s contract was due to run until 30 June 2016.

Hammill made 49 appearances in the 2013/14 season, finishing top of the Club’s assist chart.

Under Chris Powell as manager, however, he made one start and one substitute appearance at the start of the 2014/15 season before leaving to join Rotherham United on loan, where he made four starts and 10 substitute appearances.

This season he has played 18 competitive minutes for the first team this season across two substitute appearances.

After discussions with Adam, we made the decision that this was the best option for everyone concerned. The timing gives Adam the chance to find himself another club and make a clean start in his career.

Terriers chief disappointed with ruling over Blackpool game

Huddersfield Town’s Chief Executive Nigel Clibbens says the club's fans have been treated unjustly, after a Football League commission ruled that Blackpool did not need to reimburse travelling Terriers fans following the abandonment of their match in May due to a pitch invasion.

Mr Clibbens told the club's official website that the ruling is 'a real kick in the teeth' for the fans, adding it is they who have lost out in all of this.

It hardly needs saying, but Huddersfield Town is extremely disappointed with the outcome of the Football Disciplinary Commission. The Club was informed by the Football League just before the announcement and we expressed our feelings very clearly to them straight away.

This outcome means that our supporters, who were entirely innocent in the abandonment of the game and behaved impeccably despite attempts to encourage them to join in, have now been hit thanks to circumstances entirely out of their control. In the Club’s opinion, Huddersfield Town fans have been treated really poorly and that is not right.

Coming more than two months after the abandonment, it's a real kick in the teeth for our fans who have waited patiently and for the Club and will do nothing for the reputation and credibility of the football authorities in the eyes of supporters.

We will speak to the Football League again once the detailed findings of the FDC are available, but as things stand it looks like the real losers in this are Huddersfield Town fans.
