I just wondered when we can expect to know what players are leaving on a free and what academy players are being released?

Very difficult until the outcome of the takeover and EFL appeal is known...

When does Waghorn's etc contracts run out, I thought it was June? so it would need to be by then, I understand the complexities of signing players but not releasing them

Doesn’t need to be by then. Things can be organised and not made public. Waghorn's future and others are probably more than likely wrapped up and sorted.

All out of contract will go, unless they take a paycut on any new deal. If we don't sort out a new buyer for the club in the next 3 weeks or so, most of our in contract players will be cherry picked off at reduced valued prices (it happened at Wigan).

How will that happen? Wigan were in admin.

In answer to the thread’s question, I like many others am disappointed that we are only retaining one! Would one name constitute a list? I am hoping it’s Curtis Davies. Play a flat back one, keep it tight and try and nick one from a kick off. Got to be better and more successful than zonal marking at any rate.

How many of this squad would you want to retain is the more pertinent question

That’s a valid point but, importantly, how many, if any, could we afford to replace with a higher quality player?

If we’re shopping in the bargain basement, or even subject to a transfer embargo, our options to upgrade will be severely limited. I think we’ll have accept that our current squad will form the overwhelming core of our team next season. Depressing but probably true.

I think this season there will be a lot of players released by clubs and a chance to pick up some decent players at much reduced wages by virtue of the amount of them being available. Many clubs will be stripping back to the bare minimum so a chance for all to start reducing the wage bills. 
Maybe a few gems in that box of bargains to be had ?

I'd keep them anyway, we still need at least 7 new players

4 weeks ago I’d of said kept Wisdom as a squad player that would of been it but Davies showed at his age he can still come back from a bad injury so he’d definitely get another year and Waggy if he’s happy taking a big pay cut

All professional footballers contracts end on the 1st June.

If a player is in his final year of contract, he, or his agent, can begin negotiating a new contract with his present club, or contact other clubs, to any offers which may be available from the 1st January in his final year of contract.

Clubs, of course, can sell the player in the January transfer window, to receive a fee, otherwise, they receive nothing if the player runs down his contract to June.

Where have you seen that we are ‘only retaining one’?

Difficult to say with Davies. He only played for 8 minutes plus time added on and, was by his admission was struggling. So, I’m not sure he’d be able to last a great deal longer although he hadn’t trained much before the game.
