Wigan captain Stephen Warnock is one of four players released by the club after their relegation from the Championship.

Left-back Warnock, 35, initially joined on loan last season before making the move permanent last summer.

Ex-Man Utd winger Gabriel Obertan, 28, goalkeeper Jussi Jaaskelainen, 42 and full-back Andrew Taylor, 30, are also released.

Midfielders David Perkins, 34, and Jordan Flores, 21, have been offered new deals by the managerless club.

After winning League One last season Wigan were relegated straight back to the third tier after finishing 23rd in the Championship.
