Norwich City sporting director Stuart Webber has wielded his axe with seven players being told their contracts won’t be renewed this summer.
John Ruddy and Ryan Bennett are the standout names to be told they won’t form any part of the club’s future from next season.
City had options on both players to renew their deals but they have decided they can pursue better value elsewhere.
Many fans will be glad to see the back of the other five players after an underwhelming campaign, which ultimately cost Alex Neil his job.
Sebastien Bassong, Michael Turner, Steven Whittaker, Youssouf Mulumbu and Kyle Lafferty have all been deemed surplus to requirements.
Meanwhile the club also revealed that both Harry Toffolo and Declan Rudd have had their contracts extended by a year.
Toffolo has been on loan at Scunthorpe this season whilst Rudd has been in impressive form for Charlton, who had been keen to sign the shot-stopper at the end of the season.
