Former Senegal internationals Abdoulaye Faye and Papa Bouba Diop both joined the club last summer and featured regularly this season, while John Carew also leaves after one season with the club.

Youngsters Olly Lee and Frank Nouble have also been released, while Henri Lansbury and Danny Collins have returned to Arsenal and Stoke City following loan deals.
