Erwin Lemmens, Toni Soldevilla and Alex Fernandez will depart Espanyol.Espanyol have confirmed that Erwin Lemmens, Toni Soldevilla and Alex Fernandez will be leaving the club this summer.
Goalkeeper Lemmens will leave after a two-year stint and is rumoured to be a target for Celtic.
The Belgian international will be available on a free transfer having found himself surplus to requirements due to the form of Cameroonian Carlos Kameni at the Estadio Olimpico de Montjuic.
Soldevilla came through the youth ranks at Espanyol but has decided to move on as his contract has expired.
The Catalans were reported to have made him an offer to stay, but he has opted to seek pastures new with Zaragoza thought to be amongst the Primera outfits chasing him.
Fernandez, a midfielder, has been informed he longer features in boss Miguel Angel Lotina's first-teams plans and is reported to be considering an offer from an unnamed Scottish outfit.
However, Espanyol have reached a deal to retain Brazilian midfielder Fredson.
The South American seemed to be on his way out of the club a few weeks ago having rejected the terms he was initially offered, but the player's agent Carlos Jatova has now found an agreement.
The player and his representative will meet club officials to put pen to paper on Thursday.
