Bolton manager Gary Megson has confirmed Ivan Campo, Stelios Giannakopoulos and Andranik Teymourian will not be offered new deals at the Reebok.

All three are out of contract at the end of next month, as are seven other players, three of which will also have to find new clubs.

Youngsters Mark Ellis, Johann Smith and Leslie Thompson are free to find new clubs, but Megson is hopeful of keeping other out of contract players at the club.

Ricardo Gardner, Jussi Jaaskelainen, James Sinclair and Ian Walker will all be in negotiations with Bolton over the next few weeks.

"Jussi and Ricardo have both been excellent servants and are still very much part of my future plans for this football club," Megson told the club's official website.

"Hopefully we can get them secured on new deals as soon as possible."

Stelios and Campo moved to Bolton in 2003 and were part of the sides that qualified for Europe twice in three seasons. They, along with Andranik, move on with the best wishes of the manager.

"Ivan, Stelios and Andranik have all done well for Bolton Wanderers and I'd like to express my gratitude to them," Megson said.

"It's time for them to move on and I wish them all the best."

Meanwhile, Mikel Alonso, Danny Guthrie and Grzegorz Rasiak have all returned to their parent clubs, with Guthrie having the only realistic chance of signing a permanent deal over the summer.

Below is a full list of the possible outgoings at the club.
