Ahead of the draw with Dundee on Saturday Aberdeen released details of the players being retained and those leaving at the end of their contracts with several set to move onto pastures new.

The Official Website saw us reveal that no fewer than 12 players, 13 with a loanee returning to his parent club, leaving Pittodrie this summer.

Joe Shaughnessy, Clark Robertson, Craig Murray, Kieran Gibbons, Jamie Masson and Andrew Driver aren’t being offered new contracts with Donervon Daniels returning to parent club West Bromwich Albion at the end of his loan.

We already knew that Russell Anderson was retiring when the season ends and is taking up a new role with us.

Also moving on, having rejected the offer of a new contract, is Declan McManus who has agreed a move to England to sign for Fleetwood Town with U20 squad members Cem Felek, Richie Petrie and Michael Jones leaving while Marcus Campanile is off to America for a football scholarship.

Barry Robson has been offered a new contract with U20 players Danny Rogers, who was on loan with Dumbarton and has signed a new contract, staying along with Michael Rose, Lukas Culjak, Robbie Mutch and Craig Storie.

Derek McInnes explained his moves, saying.

‘I wish all the players leaving us success in the future and thank them for their hard work and endeavour while at the Club, from the youngest Kieron Gibbons, to Russell, who we know will be remaining with the Club in a corporate role.

‘Declan has decided his future lies elsewhere and we wish him all the best in his future career. We want to continue to work with players committed to Aberdeen.’
