SKIPPER Russell Penn is hoping to stay at York City after being one of four players offered new deals at Bootham Crescent.

Penn has been offered new terms at Bootham Crescent, along with out-of-contract team-mates Dave Winfield, Luke Summerfield and Michael Ingham.

Strikers Vadaine Oliver and Jake Hyde, meanwhile, have been placed on the transfer list despite both having a year left to run on their contracts and Femi Ilesanmi, George Swan, Taron Hare, Josh Carson, Kenny McEvoy, Emile Sinclair and Ben Hirst have all been released by the Minstermen.

They follow Michael Coulson out of the exit door following his decision to leave for St Johnstone under the Bosman ruling.

Free agents Danny Galbraith, Derek Riordan and Callum Rzonca are also waiting to learn their fates but youth-team striker Nick Kennedy has been offered first-year pro terms having finished the season training with the senior squad.

On his deal offer, Penn said: “It’s obviously pleasing to be offered a new contract and it’s something we have spoken about for a couple of months, but we always said we would wait until the end of the season to see what league we are in and where we want to go. I speak with the manager quite a lot and he has been quite open with me all season.

“It’s very early days now and I will have some time to think, like every player in my situation will be doing. But, with my family being up here, it’s about more than just football and hopefully things can get sorted.

“I’ve certainly not been putting my name about anywhere else because I’m happy at York.”

Scott Flinders, James Berrett, Matty Dixon and Reece Thompson are all contracted to the club beyond the summer, while loan signings Kyle Cameron, William Boyle, Lubo Satka, Scot Bennett, Luke Hendrie, Lewis Alessandra and Bradley Fewster have returned to their parent clubs.
