Former Reading trialist Connor Wickham faces another summer of being a free agent after Cardiff City let the striker go.

The former Sunderland and Ipswich Town favourite scored once in 12 appearances and is one of four Bluebirds let go.

Dillon Phillips, Tom Sang, Gavin Whyte join Wickham in heading out of the door at the Cardiff City Stadium.

Contract offers have been made for Mark Harris, Joel Bagan, and Eli King.

Set to work under a new manager Erol Bulut has taken over from Sabri Lamouchi after a 21st-place Championship finish.

A vastly-experienced player in his native Turkey, the former Fenerbahce starhas taken his first job outside of his homeland.
