League One sides Peterborough United and MK Dons have started re-shaping their squads ahead of next season.

Right-back Michael Smith is one of the surprising names to be added to the Posh transfer list, while winger Brad Inman could also be heading for the exit door - despite only joining the club a year ago.

High-profile players such as Marcus Maddison and Michael Bostwick have also been transfer-listed due to Posh's policy of trying to get a transfer fee for those entering the final year of their exisiting contracts.

Craig Mackail-Smith and Luke McGee have both returned to their respective loan clubs, but the likes of captain Chris Forrester and defender Jack Baldwin have been retained.

Players transfer listed by Peterborough United:

  • Michael Bostwick
  • Marcus Maddison
  • Lee Angol
  • Jordan Nicholson
  • Jerome Binnom-Williams
  • Hayden White
  • Luke James
  • Adil Nabi
  • Brad Inman
  • Michael Smith
  • Shaquile Coulthirst

MK Dons have also started planning for 2017/18 with the news that three players won't be offered new deals.

Academy product Daniel Powell has been released, as has striker Nicky Maynard.

Goalkeeper Charlie Burns completes the list, while Ben Reeves and Dean Lewington remain locked in talks about extending their current deals.

It’s remarkable for an Academy graduate to come through and make so many appearances in the first team (270) – a superb achievement.

Throughout his 12 years at the Club, Daniel has provided us with a number of memorable moments and he also played an important role in promotion.

I’d like to wish him, as well as Charlie and Nicky, all the best in the future.

– Pete Winkelman, MK Dons chairman

At Northampton Town, Adam Smith, Neal Eardley, Zander Diamond, Emmanuel Sonupe and Paul Anderson have all been let go.
