Kem Izzet is close to signing a new contract with Colchester United.
The U’s skipper, currently in his testimonial season, is keen to extend his long stay at the club.
Izzet, 31, is one of more than a dozen Colchester players due to be out of contract at the end of the season.
But he has already been offered a fresh deal and looks set to follow the lead of Karl Duguid and commit his future to the U’s.
Izzet said: “The contract is there - it’s just a matter of finalising a few bits and pieces.
“I’m sure everything will be signed and it’s just a matter of getting the right deal for me and my family.
“The manager knows that and me signing it isn’t a big issue.
“It’s a case of making sure I get the right deal but the future is bright for this football club."
