Hibs have confirmed reports this morning on the release of several first team players with a short statement on the club website.

It read :

Hibernian FC can confirm that the following players who are out of contract have not been offered terms of re-engagement:

Ben Williams
Sean Murdoch
Paul Grant
James McPake
Alan Maybury
Bradley Donaldson
Paul Cairney
Tom Taiwo
David Gold
Dean Horribine
Kevin Thomson

Loan players Daniel Boateng, Danny Haynes and Duncan Watmore all return to their parent clubs.

The Club would like to thank the players for their service to the Club.

The list confirms suspicions of a mass turnaround in the playing staff this summer and fans will be eager to see signing targets confirmed as under fire manager Terry Butcher attempts to take Hibs back to the Premiership at the first time of asking.

There are still rumours circulating regarding the futures of both club captain Liam Craig and Northern Ireland international Ryan McGivern with both reportedly being told they’re free to find new clubs.
