Cardiff City have placed striker Steve Thompson on the transfer list as boss Dave Jones begins a mass clear-out.
Thompson struggled in front of goal for Cardiff last season
Scotland international Thompson has paid the price for a poor season where he managed to score just 6 goals.
Defender Chris Barker, who has been on a loan for a season at Colchester, and midfielder Kevin Cooper are the others under contract to be transfer-listed.
Neil Alexander and Kevin Campbell are among 12 players out of contract who have been allowed to leave Ninian Park.
The others are Gregg Coombes, Michael Corcoran, Luigi Glombard, Mark Howard, Curtis McDonald, Nick McKoy, Jeff Whitley, Scott Allison, Jamal Easter, Scott McCoubrey.
Arsenal's Kerrea Gilbert, Willem II's Iwan Redan and Charlton's Simon Walton have returned to their clubs after the end of their loan deals.
Jones warned before the end of the season he would need to sell some of the current squad members in order to raise funds to sign new players.
