The 20-year-olds - who have come through the youth team at Portman Road, are being given the chance to find new clubs.
Manager Joe Royle (pictured) confirmed that the two players did not figure in his plans and had been given the chance to find new homes.
"We have given both Richard and Erdem free transfers so that gives them the chance to get fixed up with new clubs," Royle told the club's official website.
"They are only 20 and at a stage where they should push on and play first team football.
"There are players here in front of them and giving the two free transfers now is better than at the end of the season when so many players will be in the same situation.
"They are both great lads and we wish them all the best."
