Boss Billy Davies' revolution at Derby County rolls on, as he continues to restructure the club.
Davies left Preston North End at the end of last season and has been working hard through the summer to improve The Rams' personnel both on and off the pitch.
Bristol City's left-sided defender Clayton Fortune, 23, is the latest player to be offered a trial at County, while four members of the coaching staff have also been allowed to leave.
Fortune is available on a Bosman free transfer after being released from Ashton Gate at the end of last season.
Meanwhile, coach Steve Taylor, physio Dave Galley, sports therapist Faz Page and sports scientist Wayne Campbell have all left The Rams.
Taylor has been at County for 20 years, as a player and as a coach, most recently serving under Phil Brown and caretaker boss Terry Westley.
"To release Steve was not a decision we took lightly," managing director Mike Horton confirmed in a statement.
"He was a talented player whose career was sadly cut short and he went on to become a popular and well-respected coach under a succession of Derby County managers."
Davies still has a month to implement more changes before the new Championship season gets underway against Southampton on August 6.
