Lewis Hunt and Robbie Threlfall have both been told they have no future with City.

Peter Jackson is trying to get the two full backs out of Valley Parade to free up his budget for more signings.

Neither player was in the squad which performed so well in yesterday’s 4-1 loss to Bolton and the City boss confirmed: “We’ve said to them that they can go if they find a club.

“But it’s extremely hard to do that because there are a lot of players out there.

“It’s important that we try to get some out with the budget as tight as it is. We’re looking to maybe bring more in but obviously we’ve got to get them out first.”

Luke Oliver was also missing as he recovers from injury but he is not on the manager’s exit list.

Jackson said: “Luke’s injured at the moment but he doesn’t fall into that bracket.”
