James Harper is one of nine players released by Sheffield United.

The former Reading midfielder only completed a permanent move to Bramall Lane midway through the season, but manager Kevin Blackwell has opted to show him the door after 33 appearances for the Blades.

Glen Little, Henri Camara, Jonathon Fortune, Derek Geary, Justin Haber, Ian Bennett and reserve duo Liban Abdi and Sam Wedgbury are also heading for the exit.

Blackwell told the club`s official website: "I would like to thank all of them for what they have given Sheffield United and hope they soon find clubs.

"It is always sad to see long-serving players leave, particularly those who have served us well, but we are rebuilding a squad that we hope will equip us for a promotion challenge and this will give us some leeway towards bringing others in."
