Eight out-of-contract players will be leaving Leeds United this summer, while new deals have been offered to five young professionals and three scholars after the club submitted its summer 2016 retained list to the Football League.

Mirco Antenucci and Scott Wootton are the two first-team squad members set to depart Elland Road this summer following the expiry of their contracts, but extended stays have been offered to Bailey Peacock-Farrell, Frank Mulhern, Eoghan Stokes, Tyler Denton and Alex Purver.

First professional contracts have also been offered to second-year scholars Jack Vann, Tom Pearce and Michael Taylor, with Ronaldo Vieira having already agreed professional terms with the club recently.

However, youngsters Eric Grimes, Lewis Walters, Ross Killock, Jake Skelton, Robbie McDaid and Tom Lyman will all be leaving the club, and scholars Tyla Bell and Jack Turnbull will also be released.

Elsewhere, Tom Adeyemi, Liam Bridcutt and Mustapha Carayol have returned to their parent clubs following loan spells at Elland Road.

The club would like to thank all of the players moving on for their contributions during their time at Leeds United and wishes them the very best of luck for the future.
