Crewe Alexandra have confirmed that Steven Schumacher and Danny O'Donnell will leave the club.
Former Everton midfielder Schumacher and ex-Liverpool stopper O'Donnell have both been with the club for three years.
Boss Dario Gradi has now confirmed that neither will be handed new contracts this summer.
"I have had to think about next season and making some changes so that we don't have a repeat of this year, unfortunately that does not involve Steve or Danny," said Gradi.
"They have both been fantastic, but we need a fresh start. Steve is a goal scoring midfielder and I would have liked to have kept him but he has suffered injuries during his time here and I'm hoping to have Ashley Westwood and James Bailey here next year still, and they are both ahead of him.
"Danny has done well during his three years as well, but it is probably better for both us and him as a player if he goes elsewhere."
