Everton have decided to release out-of-contract duo Alessandro Pistone and Richard Wright.

But they have offered new contracts to Lee Carsley and Alan Stubbs.
Defender Pistone, 31, has not featured for the first team since injuring his knee in August 2005, shortly after he signed a two-year contract extension.
Wright, 29, has had five seasons at Goodison - but boss David Moyes has hinted he might eventually be offered a new deal if he needs another keeper.
"Alessandro and Richard have both been released, although the door is slightly ajar for Richard in that we may need to bring in another keeper," Moyes told Everton's website.
Wright, who has been linked to former club Ipswich, was signed by Moyes from Arsenal for £3.5m in July 2002 but has spent most of his time at the club as second choice to Nigel Martyn and then Tim Howard.
