Former England striker Emile Heskey has been released by Aston Villa after three and a half years with the midlands club.
Heskey had already indicated he would be leaving after the final home game of the campaign against Tottenham and he has not been offered a new contract.
Defender Carlos Cuellar has also parted company with Villa but the Spaniard is looking to remain in England. Number two keeper Brad Guzan is the third first team squad member to be leaving Villa Park at the end of his contract.
