Born in Norwich, Steer joined the Norwich City Academy at the age of 9. He was spotted playing in goal and City invited the youngster for a trial. It was not long before he was offered a youth contract by them.
Steer signed his first professional contract on his 17th birthday. He was first named as a substitute for the FA Cup Second Round tie against Carlisle United in the 2009–10 season. Steer played a vital role in the 2010–11 FA Youth Cup; in the Third Round, he saved a penalty in the last minute against Charlton Athletic to ensure Norwich won the game 1–0. His coach Ricky Martin said after the game;
"He's probably the best under-18 goalkeeper in the country, If ever you wanted somebody in goal Jed's the one and he stepped up and made a fantastic save."
Yeovil Town (loan)
In July 2011, Yeovil Town confirmed that Steer had joined them on a three-month loan deal.Steer made his first senior appearance and Football League debut in the opening game of the 2011–12 Football League One season in which Yeovil lost 2–0 away to Brentford. He returned to Norwich on 13 October after suffering a thigh injury.
Cambridge United (loan)
Steer joined Cambridge United on a one-month loan deal on 9 November 2012, until 8 December 2012.
The deal went forward according to plan. Villa gave him the number 13 shirt, replacing Shay Given and therefore securing the No.2 spot. He played in the League Cup 2nd round win against Rotherham United 3 - 0, keeping a clean sheet. He also kept a clean sheet in Villa's 1–0 pre-season victory over MLS side Houston Dynamo on 26 July 2014. On 24 May 2015, Steer made his Premier League debut for Villa in a 0–1 loss against Burnley.
Doncaster Rovers (loan)
After the departure of Ross Turnbull to league counterparts Barnsley, Doncaster Rovers signed Steer on a three-month loan deal on 1 August 2014. On 31 October 2014, Steer's loan ended after 17 appearances in all competitions, recording six clean sheets.
Yeovil Town (loan)
Huddersfield Town (loan)
On 11 September 2015, Steer joined Championship side Huddersfield Town on a one-month loan. He made his début the next day in Town's 2–0 loss against Cardiff City. He played on loan for 2 months, before returning to Villa, but then he returned for another month from 26 November 2015. After that was completed on 26 December, he returned to Villa, but when the Winter transfer window opened, he returned to Huddersfield for the remainder of the season.
Steer made his youth international début in October 2007 and he enjoyed a good start for the England U16s as his side lifted the Sky Sports Victory Shield, and were champions of the Montaigu Tournament in which Steer produced the matchwinning penalty save.
In August 2008, he was called up for the England U17, aged 15, for friendly matches against Italy, Portugal and Israel. He made his England U17 debut against Armenia in October 2008.
