Er..........who ?

A full-back, he made his debut for Tottenham Hotspur against Liverpool on the first day of the 2004-05 season, he has so far made three appearances in the Premier League, twice in the 2004-05 season. He had to wait a year and a half until April 2007 for his next appearance in the 2006-07 season in the teams 3-3 draw with Wigan Athletic.

He represented England U20 at 2003 FIFA World Youth Championship.

On 28 September 2007 he joined English Championship side Southampton on a three-month loan deal. On 10 January 2008 he was transferred from Tottenham Hotspur to Colchester United for an undisclosed six figure fee, with various add-ons.

He is the brother of Aberdeen F.C centre-back Jerel Ifil.

Colchester United defender Phil Ifil set his sights on sealing a new deal with the club after scoring his first goal in professional football.

He opened the scoring for the U's in their 2-1 win at Brighton on Friday.

Ifil, 23, told BBC Essex: "I'm nice and happy at the moment, it was great to score a goal, I just want to stay in the side.

"This is my last year contract-wise, so I just want to earn a new contract and play for Colchester."

Ifil moved to Colchester in January 2008 from Tottenham Hotspur but struggled to secure a regular starting place under former manager Paul Lambert.

He has made five starts for the club since Aidy Boothroyd took charge in September 2009.
