Young goalkeepers Harry Wright and Adam Przybek are both set to leave the club, along with striker Ben Folami and three other young players. 

The two keepers have not played competitive football for the Blues this season and are due to be out of contract in the coming weeks, with decisions now made over their futures. 

Wright, the son of former Town goalkeeper Richard, has struggled with a knee injury in recent months but the 22-year-old has spent time on-loan in non-league and also at Swedish club GAIS. 

Przybek, who joined Town in the summer of 2019, made his one and only Town appearance at Peterborough in last season’s EFL Trophy, having a solid game and making a vital penalty save in the shootout victory. 

He has been on-loan at National League side Chesterfield. 

The pair depart having not managed to force their way past Tomas Holy and David Cornell in the senior ranks, with teenager Bert White now the only other professional goalkeeper on the books. 

Folami is currently on loan at Melbourne Victory in his homeland, having made a total of seven appearances for Town since making his debut under Mick McCarthy in the Championship.

Also departing are young forwards Kai and Zak Brown, who are not related. Kai Brown never made a senior appearance for the club after signing from Grays, while Zak, brother of MK Dons forward Charlie, made his debut in the Papa John's Trophy under Paul Lambert. 

French midfielder Allan Viral is also moving on this summer.

"We'd like to wish all the boys the very best of luck for the future," Town's general manager of football operations, Lee O'Neill, said.

It’s likely to be a summer of real change at Portman Road, with 30 players’ deals up. Barry Cotter has already been released.
