DUNFERMLINE ATHLETIC have revealed that they will not be offering new deals to five players as they reshape the squad at East End Park.

Justin Skinner, Michel Doesburg, David Moss, John Potter and Keir Nicol have been told they will not be offered new deals and they need to find themselves new clubs.

Defensive duo Potter and Nicol have failed to establish themselves with The Pars, while former Motherwell midfielder Doesburg and Moss have been in and out of the side with Moss recently spending a spell on loan at Ayr.

The Pars have offered new deals to Marco Ruitenbeek and Lee Bullen, and boss Jimmy Calderwood (pictured) is still hopeful of persuading veteran midfielder Ian Ferguson to stay on at the club despite offers to move to America.

"I'm still talking to Fergie about staying on and hopefully we can do something," said Calderwood.

"I don't think any of the players who are leaving are a surprise, other than Justin Skinner, because he has been playing well and he's a great lad.

"If Lee and Marco don't accept their offers, they'll be away as well."

Calderwood is also determined to make the moves of on-loan duo Michael Panopoulos and Sean Kilgannon permanent.

"I have already decided that I want to keep Michael and Sean after their loan periods are over," said Calderwood.

"Michael is on a Bosman free transfer from Portsmouth at the end of the season, but we will have to negotiate with Middlesbrough over Sean."
