Izzet ready to sign new contract with Colchester
Kem Izzet is on the verge of signing his new contract with Colchester United.
The U’s skipper is expected to put pen to paper on a new deal with the U’s “within the next few days”.
Izzet, 31, sees his current deal at the Weston Homes Community Stadium expire this summer.
However, the long-serving midfielder was offered a new contract by Colchester in April.
Like Ward, Izzet has recently been away on holiday, which has delayed the process of him committing his future to the U’s.
However, he is now back at the club he has served for more than 11 years and is ready to sign on the dotted line.
Izzet said: “I’m not too far off signing my new contract.
“Hopefully, it should all be done in the next few days.”
