John Gregory has started shaping his Queens Park Rangers squad for next season by offering deals to two players and handing free transfers to another eight.
Marcus Bignot and Marc Nygaard survive the cull, if they do so desire, having been presented with one-year deals but several other experienced campaigners have been axed.
Fans' favourites Marc Bircham and Kevin Gallen have been shown the Loftus Road exit door, but neither player is likely to be short of suitors for their services.
Gregory has been ruthless further in telling Steve Lomas, Paul Furlong, Simon Royce, Paul Jones, Mauro Milanese and Armel Tchakounte that they too are surplus to requirements.
"I felt it was only right to inform the players and the fans of my decision prior to our final home game of the season, because it gives them the chance to say goodbye," said Gregory.
