Fulham manager Chris Coleman has released six members of his first-team squad as he begins preparations for next season.
French defender Alain Goma is the biggest casualty, while striker Facundo Sava and youngsters Adam Green, Neale McDermott, Robert Watkins and Richard De Villiers will also be departing Craven Cottage.
Coleman had been hoping to keep hold of Goma, who was used sparingly last season, but contract negotiations stalled and the decision was made to allow the 33-year-old to leave.
Goma was the club's record signing when he moved to West London in 2001 for £4 million, but the former Newcastle man has struggled with injuries during his time at the club.
Argentinian striker Facundo Sava spent the final season of his contract with Spanish side Lorca Deportiva after failing to make the grade in The Premiership.
"The club would like to thank all the players for their services and contributions and wishes them all the best for the future," read a statement on the club's official website.
