Bournemouth manager Kevin Bond has confirmed three out-of-contract players have been released by the relegated club.
Goalkeeper Gareth Stewart, midfielder Steven Foley and forward Jo Tessem have all been told to find new clubs after Bond decided not to hand them new deals.
"I'd like to give a big thank you to them all. They all played their part this season," Bond told the Bournemouth Echo.
A major rebuilding job looks on the cards for the Cherries, who suffered an agonising relegation on the final day, with influential pair Russ Perrett and Neil Young having confirmed their retirements from the professional game.
The financially-stricken South Coast club, who were docked 10 points for entering administration this season, could also struggle to hold on to young striker Sam Vokes, a reported target for Aston Villa and Newcastle.
