Everton release Valente and Van der Meyde
Everton have released Portuguese left-back Nuno Valente and Dutch winger Andy van der Meyde.
Portugal international Valente, who won the Champions League with Porto in 2004, moved to Goodison Park in 2005.
Van der Meyde joined from Inter Milan four years ago, but struggled badly with injuries and disciplinary and personal problems.
Everton have also released youngsters John Irving, John Paul Kissock, Scott Spencer, Eunan O'Kane and Cory Sinnott, while Segundo Castillo has returned to Red Star Belgrade after his loan spell came to an end.
