Sheffield United trio Richard Wright, Stephen Jordan and Jean Calve have departed Bramall Lane, the club have confirmed.
Goalkeeper Wright and defender Jordan have had their contracts terminated by mutual consent, while on-loan right-back Calve has returned to French parent club Nancy.
The club announced the departures on their official website and said they had parted company with the trio on an 'amicable basis'.
Manager Micky Adams also said: "I would like to thank them for their efforts here and wish them all well in their future careers in the game."
Jordan, a former Manchester City and Burnley player, joined the South Yorkshire club last year from Turf Moor.
The 29-year-old stopper, who made 15 appearances for the Blades, completed a one-month emergency loan at Huddersfield earlier this year.
Former Arsenal, Everton and West Ham keeper Wright, twice capped for England, arrived at Bramall Lane from Ipswich last year but made just two outings for the Blades, taking a backseat to No.1 Steven Simonsen.
French stopper Calve signed a one-year loan deal with United last summer and notched up 18 appearances during his stay.
The Blades are battling relegation from the Championship this season, with disappointing results leaving them third-bottom of the table and seven points adrift of safety.
