Derby County have confirmed defensive duo Claude Davis and Martin Albrechtsen have had their contracts cancelled by mutual consent.
Davis and Albrechtsen have both been deemed surplus to requirements by Rams boss Nigel Clough and had not featured in the first team this season.
Jamaican centre-half Davis is now expected to join Championship rivals Crystal Palace, where he spent the final stages of last season on loan.
Palace boss Neil Warnock confirmed that the club have had a work permit hearing for the 30-year-old and should now finalise a deal for Davis.
Albrechtsen, meanwhile, is expected to return to his native Denmark with reports suggesting the versatile defender will join FC Midtjylland.
The 29-year-old made 42 appearances for Derby last season after arriving from West Brom, but admitted earlier in the summer that he was open to a move away from Pride Park.
