Mirco Antenucci and Scott Wootton are among eight out-of-contract players who will leave Leeds United this summer.
First team squad members Antenucci and Wootton will leave following the expiry of their contracts, while extended stays have been offered to Bailey Peacock-Farrell, Frank Mulhern, Eoghan Stokes, Tyler Denton and Alex Purver.
The five young players are included on the club's summer retained list submitted to the Football League.
First professional contracts have been offered to second-year scholars Jack Vann, Tom Pearce and Michael Taylor, with Ronaldo Vieira having recently agreed professional terms.
However, youngsters Eric Grimes, Lewis Walters, Ross Killock, Jake Skelton, Robbie McDaid and Tom Lyman will all be leaving the club, and scholars Tyla Bell and Jack Turnbull will also be released.
Tom Adeyemi, Liam Bridcutt and Mustapha Carayol have returned to their parent clubs following loan spells at Elland Road.
A statement on the Leeds website said: "The club would like to thank all of the players moving on for their contributions during their time at Leeds United and wishes them the very best of luck for the future."
