Nine Blackpool players are set to leave the club at the end of the season.
Manager Steve McMahon has confirmed that Graham Fenton, John O'Kane, Ian Hughes, Jamie Milligan, Ben Thornley, Paul Dalglish, Michael Theoklitos, John Hills, and Lee Collins will not have their contracts renewed.
McMahon told BBC Radio Lancashire: "It's unfortunate for some of the players, especially when they've had to play knowing that their futures are in doubt.
"So it hasn't been easy, especially for some of the good pros that have had to be told. But it needs a change, and we all move on.
"I need better quality if we want to progress, and decisions have got to be made."
