The trio are joined by striker Kyle Vassell, central defenders Christian Burgess and Shaun Brisley and midfielder Kane Ferdinand as players who can leave Posh in the summer.

Out-of-contract players Nathaniel Mendez-Laing, Bobby Olejnik and David Norris have already been released by Posh.

Striker Aaron Mclean has returned to Bradford City at the end of his loan spell. He finished the season as player-coach.

Payne initially claimed that he found out about the decision to transfer list him on Twitter, a claim chairman Darragh MacAnthony immediately rubbished. Payne, who has made over 100 appearances for Posh, made his claim on Twitter, but subsequently took his statement down from the social media site.

James scored just two goals in 34 appearances (21 starts) since moving from Hartlepool in August.

Newell won three player-of-the year awards at the end of the 2014-15 season.
