At the end of every season, clubs release their ‘retained lists’ of players that will stay at the club and those that will leave at the end of their contract.
Sunderland announced their retained list last month with Aiden McGeady headlining the players leaving the Stadium of Light this summer.
The Black Cats are currently preparing for life in the Championship next season and supporters will be hoping for updates on the talks over new deals for Bailey Wright, Lynden Gooch and Patrick Roberts sooner rather than later.
McGeady joins Wes Hoolahan, Ben Watson and Oumar Niasse in being the biggest names to be released by League One clubs, but what other moves have already been made?
