Stephen Carr, Peter Ramage and James Troisi have all been told that their contracts will not be renewed at the end of the season; so all three will be released.
Kevin Keegan confirmed that he did want to keep Ramage, who has recently returned from a long-term injury, but as he couldn't give him any first-team assurances it has been agreed that he will join the others in leaving: 'We wanted to keep Rammy but he wants to play regular football and I couldn't guarantee that here,' Keegan told the official website. 'He goes with our best wishes, as does Stephen Carr, who's been a great pro.'
'He wasn't offered a contract and I explained the reasons why.' Carr has struggled for first team football this season so his release is of little surprise.
19-year-old Troisi, like Ramage, came through the Toon's youth academy but was unable to break into the first-team, he will however be taking part in this summers Olympic Games with Australia and if he doesn't fix himself up with a club before then, he will be hoping that this will give him the window that he needs to catch the eye.
Is Keegan right to allow these three to leave St James'?
