Needham Market are set to announce the exciting signing of former Colchester United midfielder Kemal Izzett this evening.

The 32-year-old, who played his entire professional career with the U’s, has agreed in principal to a two-year deal with the Marketmen and could be set for his debut tonight at Witham Town.

The combative midfielder joins with a wealth of Football League experience, having ammassed 420 appearances with the U’s, scoring 18 goals in the process, but didn’t feature at all last season, resulting in his departure from the Essex based outfit last week.

However, he is now set for a starring role in Mark Morsley’s side alongside fellow former professional Ian Westlake and former team mate Jamie Guy.

“Kem has today agreed a two-year deal with the club,” revealed the manager speaking of his latest big-name signing.

“He is a hell of a signing for us and will mix his playing time with a bit of work coaching the academy.”
