Both players' contracts ran out this summer and despite being offered new deals by Blues, they decided against renewing and will both be seeking out new clubs ahead of the coming season.

Burke joined as a free agent from Cardiff in 2011 and played 151 times, scoring 28 goals and earning the player of the season award and players' player of the season in his first year at the club.
