Yeovil: Izale McLeod leaves club by mutual consent

Yeovil striker Izale Mcleod has today left the League Two strugglers due to “personal reasons” the club have confirmed.

32-year-old McLeod, who only joined the Somerset club in July from Notts County, made just two starts for Darren Way’s side.

He made six appearances in all competitions for the Glovers before the decision came by both parties to mutually terminate his contract.

“We’ve decided Izale is going to cancel his contract, which I think is fair play to him and we wish him well,” manager Darren Way told BBC Somerset.

McLeod has been a stalwart of the lower leagues for most of his career having played for over ten different clubs in Leagues One and Two, including Charlton Athletic and the first few years of Milton Keynes Dons.

He started his career at Derby County in 2002 before moving to the newly formed Dons, two seasons later, where he enjoyed his best spell as a professional footballer, scoring 54 goals in 117 league appearances and earning a call up to the England under 21 squad for a maiden cap in 2006.

He then earned a move to the Championship with Charlton for a £1.1 million fee but only scored one goal in 18 games and was allowed to depart the club on loan to Colchester United in February 2008.

Unsuccessful loan moves to Millwall and Peterborough United followed before his contract at Charlton was cancelled in 2010.

He then had a positive spell at Barnet for two years then had stints at Portsmouth, MK Dons once again, Northampton, Crawley and Notts County for a fee of £100,000 before joining Yeovil in the summer.

He will now search for a new club.
