Manchester City trio named on Premier League's released list

Manchester City trio Costel Pantilimon, Gareth Barry and Joleon Lescott are all named on Premier League's list of players that have been released by their respective clubs.

Manchester City trio Costel Pantilimon, Gareth Barry and Joleon Lescott have all been named on the Premier League's list of players that have been released by their respective clubs.

All three players are out of contract this summer, although it remains to be seen if they will be offered new deals by manager Manuel Pellegrini.

Romania international Pantilimon made just seven appearances for the Premier League champions last season, but played for the club during their League Cup final victory over Sunderland.

Lescott has not played for City since their 5-0 win over Fulham in March, and chief executive Ferran Soriano revealed last week that he would be departing.

Meanwhile, Barry has enjoyed a successful season on loan at Everton, and started 32 league matches for the Toffees as they finished fifth in the table.

Manchester City have not officially confirmed that any of the players have been released and the Premier League's official website states: "Please note that players signified as a 'free transfer' or released by a club could remain there next season and so this list should not be seen as definitive for players leaving their club."

Thomas Agyiri, Alex Henshall, Kieran Kennedy, George Swan and Alex Tchuimeni-Nimely are the other players that are named as being released by City.
