Patrick Kisnorbo: Released by Leeds

Despite also being released, Leigh Bromby will stay on at Elland Road in a coaching capacity while Davide Somma has been offered the chance to prove his fitness during the summer having struggled all season with a recurring knee injury.

Other victims of the end-of-season cull include loanee Habib Habibou and Academy players Monty Gimpel, Sanchez Payne, Patrick Antelmi and Jordan Snodin.

Kisnorbo will be remembered by Whites' fans for the role he played in their promotion from League One during the 2009/10 season while Rabchubka has spent the latter part of this season on loan at Accrington.

Having suffered a serious knee injury at Cardiff a year ago, Bromby has not played this season but his standing at the club has been recognised with an offer to stay on and coach the Academy side.
