Cape Town - The Premier League have published a list of all the players released by clubs at the end of the 2015/16 campaign, with a number of high-profile players now looking for new clubs.

Experienced goalkeeper Victor Valdes has been released by Manchester United after making just two first-team appearances, while Liverpool have decided not to retain the services of veteran centre-back Kolo Toure.

Emmanuel Adebayor has parted ways with Crystal Palace after failing to nail down a regular starting place under manager Alan Pardew.

Arsenal have released the midfielder trio of Mikel Arteta, Mathieu Flamini and Tomas Rosicky, while Manchester City have shown defender Martin Demichelis the Etihad exit.

Elsewhere, Everton have released long-serving duo Tony Hibbert and Leon Osman, while midfielder Steven Pienaar also heads for the Goodison Park exit.
