10 released as Tunchev is given repreive

Shown the door: Ricardo
Ten Leicester City players who are out of contract as of the end of this season will not have their current deals renewed, according to a statement on the club's official website.

Young players make up most of the list: Robert Ambrusics, Ashley Chambers, Nathan Hicks, Jorrin John, Craig King, Ben Milnes, Luke O'Neill, Aman Verma and Adi Yussuf will all not have their contracts renegotiated and they will expire on 30th June this year.

The only player to have made a first team appearance this year whose contract will not be renegotiated is Portuguese goalkeeper Ricardo. The ex-international failed to consolidate his position between the sticks after a shaky start to his career at the Walkers Stadium and he is now free to look for another club.

Perhaps the only surprise is that Aleksandar Tunchev will not be immediately released from his contract, which is also due to expire at the end of next month. Tunchev - out of action for nearly two years before his two substitute appearances at the end of the season - has been invited by Sven Goran Eriksson to join his team for their pre-season preparations and his place at the club will be determined following further assessment by the coaching team.
