Aston Villa have confirmed they will not be renewing the contracts of Thomas Sorensen and Patrik Berger, freeing both players to find new clubs.

Dane Sorensen was signed by David O'Leary from Sunderland in 2003 while Berger's three-year stay at Villa Park has been blighted by injuries.

Berger also upset boss Martin O'Neill when he said star midfielder Gareth Barry should join Liverpool.

Sorensen did not feature this season following the arrival of Scott Carson.
