Colchester United have received a major boost ahead of the Essex derby with Southend.

Long-serving midfielder Kem Izzet has put pen-to-paper on a new deal with the Layer Road outfit.

The 25-year-old has been instrumental in United's push for promotion this season and news of his commitment will provide a terrific lift ahead of Saturday's game.

Izzet, who joined from Charlton Athletic five years ago, missed the whole of last season through injury, although he has played a total of 191 games for the club, also notching 18 goals.
