Neil Sullivan and 35-year-old Robbie Earle expected to leave on Bosman transfers when their contracts end at the of the season, while Euell voiced his discontent with the club last week.
Euell (pictured) and Cort, who have both gained international honours for the England Under-21 side, have been extensively linked with a number of Premiership clubs.
Striker John Hartson, who recently saw a proposed move to Tottenham fall through, is expected to depart when he comes back from a hernia operation in the summer and proves his fitness and form.
Leeds United are believed to have had a £5 million bid for Cort rejected, but could renew their interest at the end of the season, while Euell has been similarly linked with Spurs and Leicester.
Liverpool have been long rumoured to hold a torch for defender Thatcher and another approach in the summer cannot be ruled out, which would see manager Egil Olsen without half of his first team at the start of next season.
With another home-grown talent, Marcus Gayle, thought to be being targeted by Leicester the battle for Premiership survival for another season could mean that next season will be a bigger battle than ever.
