Man City reveal released and retained list – Manchester Evening News

Manchester City have released six players ahead of the new season.

Vincent Kompany was the only first team player out of contract this summer and while the club were keen to retain their captain, the 33-year-old opted for a new challenge by taking over as player manager at Anderlecht.

Luke Brattan has also been released by City after four years at the club without making a senior appearance. The 29-year-old, born in Hull but raised in Australia, has been on loan with Melbourne City since 2016.

Academy prospects Cameron Humphreys-Grant, Charlie Oliver, Aaron Nemane and Tom Dele-Bashiru have all been released after the end of their contracts.

Dele-Bashiru, 19, made one first team appearance under Pep Guardiola but the Blues had been unable to agree a deal with him to extend his stay at the Etihad, while Nemane, 21, has had loan spells at Go Ahead Eagles and Tubize recently.

Humphreys made 11 appearances in Premier League 2 last season and played twice in the EFL Trophy. Oliver had a spell on loan with Brentford B last term.
