Derby County manager Nigel Clough has confirmed the Rams’ end of season retained list.
Most of the work leading up to the announcement of the retained list took place earlier this month with veteran left-back Gareth Roberts the only out-of-contract player moving on to pastures new, while Ben Davies penned a new one-year deal earlier this month.
Goalkeepers Saul Deeney and Ross Atkins, left-back Michael Hoganson and attacker Conor Doyle have all agreed one-year contract extensions, as their deals were due to expire at the end of June. Hoganson and Doyle will remain part of the Under 21 squad for next season, although it is hoped Doyle will go out on loan to gain first-team experience - as well as Atkins.
Seven players under contract have been made available for permanent transfer, Clough confirmed a few weeks ago, while Burnley goalkeeper Lee Grant and Norwich City striker Chris Martin will officially join the Rams as of 1st July 2013.
Out of contract and not offered new terms: Gareth Roberts.
Out of contract and signed new terms: Ben Davies, Michael Hoganson, Conor Doyle, Saul Deeney, Ross Atkins.
