YORK CITY captain Russell Penn is one of four players to be offered a new deal to remain with the club next season – while eight of the squad have been released.
The Minstermen will be returning to Non-League next season four years after winning promotion through the play-offs at Wembley.
City finished bottom of League Two and will be back in Non-League alongside Dagenham & Redbridge. And it looks like it will be a busy summer for York boss Jackie McNamara.
The Scot has already started shaping his squad for next term in the National League, offering new deals to midfielders Penn and Luke Summerfield, veteran keeper Michael Ingham and defender Dave Winfield.
George Swan, Femi Ilesanmi, Taron Hare, Josh Carson, Kenny McEvoy, Michael Coulson, Emile Sinclair and Ben Hirst, however, will be leaving the Minstermen after reaching the end of their contracts.
Strikers Jake Hyde and Vadaine Oliver could also be heading for the exit at Bootham Crescent having been placed on the transfer list.
Second-year scholar Nick Kennedy has been offered his first professional contract and McNamara is set to meet with Derek Riordan, Danny Galbraith and Callum Rzonca about remaining at the club.
Four players guaranteed to be with York next season are goalkeeper Scott Flinders, midfielders James Berrett and Matty Dixon and striker Reece Thompson who are all under contract beyond this summer.
