Career

Izzet started his career with Premier League club Charlton Athletic. He did not break into the first team at Charlton,[1] and in April 2001, he joined Colchester United on a permanent basis after a one month loan period.[2 ] Later that year, he was linked with Ipswich Town and Leicester City but was happy to stay with Colchester,[1] and signed a long-term contract with the club in March 2002.[3] Izzet missed most of the 2004–05 season owing to an ankle injury that required surgery.[4] He recovered for the 2005–06 season and was a key member of the team that challenged for promotion that season.[5] He signed a new contract in March 2006 and, after lengthy negotiations, a contract extension in January 2008.[5][6 ] At that time, he was the club's second longest serving player.[7] By the end of the 2008–09 season, Izzet had made over 330 league and cup appearances for Colchester.[8]

He was named twice the club's Young Player of the Year.
