JASON STEELE has hailed Albion’s goalkeepers as probably the best he has worked with.

But he would love to fend off stiff competition to make a Premier League debut.

The former Middlesbrough and Blackburn No.1 believes he has shown what he can do by excelling behind the under-21s at Luton.

Steele made a string of super saves as the older head of a very young Albion side who went down 2-1 at Kenilworth Road.

The 28-year-old from County Durham has started the campaign as third choice behind Mathew Ryan and David Button, who started the Carabao Cup tie against Southampton.

But, after recovering from a thigh injury sustained in pre-season, he is ready and eager to play a part in the league campaign.

Steele told The Argus: “We’ve got a good group, probably the strongest goalkeeping group I’ve been a part of.

“We have three, in my opinion, good goalkeepers.

“Maty has been unbelievable for the past year-and-a-half now and we will be there to help and support him and, if anything happens, David played well the other night.

“We are very close. We like to think we are all good lads and we get along and we push each other every day.

“But I will try my hardest. I will make sure of that.”

Ryan will miss matches in January due to international commitments, which could offer Steele a chance to play in the Premier League.

He said: “Ultimately, that is what I came here to do.

“I’ve always wanted to play in the Premier League. I’ve only ever been a sub and you never know what is around the corner.

“Hopefully I keep pushing hard every day, keep improving on every aspect of my game and what will be will be.

“If it doesn’t happen, it doesn’t happen.”
