Western Sydney Wanderers have opted not to re-sign youngsters Daniel Alessi, Alusine Fofanah and Shayne D'Cunha for the 2016-17 A-League season.
On the back of the club's all-time top goalscorer, Mark Bridge, departing for Thailand, last season's runners-up have made the decision to trim the fringe trio.
Most notable of them is Sierra Leone-born winger Fofanah, who became the youngest player in the history of the A-League in 2014 when he made his debut as a 17-year-old in January 2015 against Adelaide United.
Fofanah, who once trialled with Manchester City as a junior, played seven matches for the Wanderers.
Fellow-18-year-old Alessi played in 11 matches for the Wanderers after debuting in the club's 2014 Sydney derby win.
Shayne D'Cunha, 22, played two matches in the 2014-15 season after becoming the first Indian-born player to turn out in the A-League.
