Six players have left Hull City following their relegation from the Premier League.
The contracts of Liam Rosenior, Paul McShane, Yannick Sagbo, Maynor Figeroa, Steve Harper and Joe Dudgeon all expire at the end of the season while Alex Bruce and Stephen Quinn have been offered new deals with the Tigers.
Regrettably, following relegation we have made the decision to release the majority of those players whose contracts have expired. We would like to place on record our thanks for the service they have given to the club, particularly our two longest serving players Liam Rosenior and Paul McShane. Both players have been outstanding for us and they leave with our very best wishes for their futures. The aim now is to retain as many of the remaining squad as possible and look to add some new faces this summer as we bid to compete at the top end of the Championship and bounce straight back into the top flight.
Paul McShane had been at the KC since 2008 when he initially arrived on loan from Sunderland and was a key player in Hull's first season in the Premier League. He scored five goals in 136 appearances. Rosenior played for the Tigers 161 times after arriving on a free in 2010.
Veteran goalkeeper Harper departs having made 31 appearances for the Club while Dudgeon, Sagbo and Figueroa have racked up 127 appearances between them.
Thanks to all the fans 1st year was fantastic with the final cup and the 2 not good enough but its been a pleasure to play for @hullcity
A goalless draw at home to Manchester United condemned Hull to the Championship next season.
Hull City must beat Manchester United today and hope Newcastle drop points against West Ham to avoid relegation from the Premier League
