Birmingham's Muzzy Izzet admits he is looking forward to the new campaign.Birmingham's Muzzy Izzet is looking forward to the new campaign after missing the previous eight months with a knee injury.
The Turkish schemer has endured a nightmare time since swapping Leicester for St Andrews last summer, making just 10 appearances in total.
Izzet concedes that he faces a phycological battle ahead, as he looks to convince the club's supporters of his true value.
Izzet enjoyed an excellent relationship with the Filbert Street faithful and is now looking to do the same at Birmingham.
''A lot of it is now mental for me,'' said Izzet.
''You are going to get the odd twinge but I think everything is ok.
''It's the longest I've ever been injured and it's been very, very frustrating.
''This is going to be like signing for a new club. It's good to be putting the boots on again after such a long time.
''Injuries were our downfall last season.''
