Lamey told to find another club; Verma also released

The spinning door at the Walkers Stadium has begun to turn as Sven Goran Eriksson looks to rebuild his Leicester City squad in preparation for the 2011/12 promotion campaign.

Door: Michael Lamey failed to make an impact
Dutch defender Michael Lamey has been told to look for a new club after Eriksson played him just once - the 31-year-old made only seven starts all season despite being signed by Paulo Sousa on a two-year deal. Meanwhile, Aman Verma has been released for the second time. The 23-year-old has failed to shine since graduating from the Foxes' academy side and has been offered a deal at Blue Square Premier outfit Darlington after a successful loan spell there.

Meanwhile, Eriksson has rubbished talks that Steve Howard could depart the club in the Summer: "He's our player and has a contract for one more year," said Eriksson defensively after BBC Radio Leicester questioned the ex-England boss on rumours linking the Scot to Sheffield Wednesday.

Derby County are believed to be chasing fans' favourite Martyn Waghorn after his poor showing since a £2 million deal with Sunderland saw the young forward move to Leicester as Sousa attempted to win the hearts of Foxes fans. Waghorn had a successful loan spell at the Walkers Stadium under Nigel Pearson.

Finally, Aleksandar Tunchev is yet to learn his fate after returning from two knee injuries to rapturous applause as he played an hour in City's final game of the season against Ipswich. It is thought Tunchev could extend his current deal - which expires next month - for one year on a pay-as-you-play basis.
