Published Add your comment

Manchester United have today confirmed the release of four players, as Sir Alex Ferguson continues preparation for the 2012/13 campaign.

Players are free to join or leave clubs from 1 July, and the Red Devils have released a statement on their official website.

Michael Owen and Tomas Kuszczak are the most notable departures having made 113 first-team appearances between them, alongside 18-year-old goalkeepers Liam Jacob and Joe Coll, who also leave Old Trafford.

Kuszczak joins up with Npower Championship side Brighton and Hove Albion after signing a two-year deal with Gus Poyet's Seagulls side, while teenager Jacob has signed for League One outfit Oldham Athletic.

Owen and Coll remain free agents, but the 32-year-old former Liverpool, Real Madrid and Newcastle striker is believed to be being courted by a host of Premier League clubs.

In an official statement on, Manchester United paid tribute to the services of all four players, and wished them the best of luck in their future careers.
