Ipswich Town have announced on their club website the release of defender Christophe Berra along with six other first-team players.

The Tractor Boys recently announced they would not be triggering their one-year option on Berra’s contract as the 32-year-old wants to return to Scotland to spend more time with his family.

“Leaving the club following the expiration of their contracts will be Christophe Berra, Paul Digby, Jonathan Douglas, Giles Coke, Leon Best, Jacob Marsden and Joe Robinson,” the club said on their official website.

“Mick McCarthy has already confirmed that he would like to keep Jordan Spence and Steven Taylor beyond the end of their short-term deals, with the former Newcastle defender being allowed to return for pre-season training with the view to earning a contract if he can prove his fitness.”

Kundai Benyu and Harry Wright have both been offered new deals, while scholars Kieron Cathline, Ross Meldrum and Kolade Salaudeen will all leave Portman Road.
