No less than seven players are expected to leave League Two outfit Peterborough United this summer.
Ben Futcher has been told he does not figure in manager Darren Ferguson's plans while Danny Crow and Richard Butcher have both been transfer listed.
"It's obviously disappointing but these things happen in football," said Futcher. "The new manager has come in and he wants to bring in his own players.
"I've enjoyed my time at Peterborough. It's been an up and down season and it's obviously never nice when the manager gets sacked, but it's time to move on."
Peterborough are asking for fees for Crow and Butcher, although Guy Branston, Shane Huke, Trevor Benjamin and Justin Richards are all free to leave.
Meanwhile, Ferguson has been hit with a Football Association disciplinary charge following last Saturday's ill-tempered clash at Chester.
