Rotherham United have submitted their retained list to the EFL ahead of the 2021/22 campaign.

The club can confirm Billy Jones, Shaun MacDonald, Jamie Proctor, Clark Robertson and Kyle Vassell will depart AESSEAL New York Stadium upon the expiry of their contracts on 30th June 2021.

Meanwhile, the management team have opened discussions with right-back Matt Olosunde and goalkeeper Josh Vickers – whose deals are also set to expire at the end of next month – about the prospect of extending their stay in South Yorkshire.

Forward Proctor will depart the club following a four-year stay with the Millers, while 2019/20 promotion-winners MacDonald, Robertson, Vassell and Jones will also leave when their deals expire.

Loan players Lewis Wing, George Hirst, Jamal Blackman, Ryan Giles and Florian Jozefzoon will all return to their parent clubs, following the conclusion of their loan spells with the Millers.

Rotherham United manager Paul Warne expressed his appreciation to the outgoing members of his 2020/21 squad and thanked them for their efforts in a Rotherham United shirt.  

“It goes without saying that it is a sad time of the year when the team splits up, you never get the same dressing room the following year,” Warne told

“The lads who are leaving have all played a part in previous seasons and I would like to place on record my thanks to each and every one of them for their efforts during their time with us.

“We ask a lot of our players here and they are always happy to step up and perform for our great club and our town. On behalf of the players, staff and supporters at Rotherham United, I would like to sincerely thank each and every one of them and wish them nothing but success for the future.
