U's Izzet Wants 'Championship wages'
Colchester United, this week moving to secure the long term future of many players in the squad in the wake of Jamie Cureton`s transfer request, have been told by Kem Izzet that he expects to be "paid Championship wages."
In tonight`s Evening Gazette, the midfielder, 27, will claim that he is undecided on whether or not to sign a new extension to his current contract, despite the fact that fellow team-mates John White and Kevin Watson had yesterday both agreed to stay.
Izzet said: "It's in their hands.
"I have held talks with the club but nothing has been agreed," he added.
"As long as the offer is what I'm looking for I will sign - but we're pretty far apart at the moment."
"I'm happy to stay at Colchester United. But I'm a Championship player and I feel that I should be paid Championship wages."
