Long- serving Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Jose Semedo has been released by the club along with six other out-of-contract players.
Fans’ favourite Semedo made 167 appearances in six seasons with the Owls and is leaving along with defenders Claude Dielna, Darryl Lachman and Vincent Sasso, former Holland international Urby Emanuelson and Senegalese winger Modou Sougou.
French defender Sasso scored twice in 14 outings this season as Wednesday were defeated in the semi-finals of the Sky Bet Championship play-offs, while wide-man Emanuelson featured just once.
Dielna, Lachman and Sougou have all being playing their football away from Hillsborough after being loaned out by manager Carlos Carvalhal.
Wingers Will Buckley and Callum McManaman, who were on loan at Wednesday from Sunderland and West Brom respectively, have returned to their parent clubs.
Confirming the departures, a short statement on swfc.co.uk read: “The Owls would like to thank them for their services and wish them well for the future.”
