Owls boss Paul Sturrock has announced that three of the five out-of-contract Wednesday players will not be offered a new contract.
Jon-Paul McGovern, Drissa Diallo and Richie Partridge will all be leaving the club in the summer after one-on-one discussions with Sturrock at Middlewood training ground yesterday.
Owls club captain Lee Bullen has verbally agreed a one-year extension to his contract, while 'keeper David Lucas is currently pondering over a deal to keep him at the club.
The release of fans favourite McGovern will come as a shock to most Wednesdayites. With the former player of the season not yet back to full fitness, fans thought the gaffer may give him another season to prove his fitness after an injury-plagued 2005/2006 season.
Most expected Richie Partridge to leave after the former Liverpool winger was given few chances to prove his worth despite agreeing a six-month contract extension back in December 2005.
Defender Drissa Diallo was also expected to leave the club after he fell down the pecking order at Hillsborough following his move north from Ipswich in the summer.
Sturrock has also announced that Craig Rocastle - currently on loan at Swindon Town - and young defender Patrick Collins will also be free to find new clubs. David Graham, who is currently on loan at Huddersfield, has had his loan extended until the end of the play-offs and his future will be discussed after.
