Dunn and Olsson free to leave

Blackburn Rovers have released 16 players and have not yet agreed new contracts with either David Dunn or Marcus Olsson.

Dunn, 34, in his second spell at the club, made 24 appearances for Rovers this season, scoring four goals, while Swede Olsson featured on only nine occasions, although he started in the last three matches.

Both players are out of contract in the summer and are now free to talk to other clubs, although both could yet stay at Ewood Park.

Rovers, who finished two points shy of the play-offs, have also let William Beesley, Robbie Cotton, Ryan Edwards, Hugo Fernandez Molina, Timothy Payne, Deniz Pero, Aaron Tumwa and Matthew Urwin go.

Youth-team players Jordan Anderson, Thomas Brown, William Butterwick, Callum Harris, Thomas Paul, Yeray Torres Martinez, Ian Vicars and Brice Wassi have also been released.
