St Johnstone have released Danny Swanson, Courier Sport understands.
The playmaker returned to McDiarmid Park two years ago for his third spell with the Perth club.
However, a combination of injury and the form of others kept Swanson on the fringes this season.
The 33-year-old struggled to get game-time, making just three Premiership starts under recently departed manager Tommy Wright.
Swanson was made available for transfer in January, with Dundee among the clubs linked with him, but a move didn’t materialise and his contract has now run out.
Wright first recruited Swanson on loan from Coventry City five years ago and went back for him after spells with Hearts and Hibs respectively.
At his peak, he was Saints’ main creative threat. In 2016-17 he scored 15 goals. The strike he will be best remembered for, though, was the long-range winner at Celtic Park in March 2015.
His career highlight came a decade ago, almost to the day, when he lifted the Scottish Cup with Dundee United.
With there being no sign of a return to football, Saints will be trimming their squad to cope with the coronavirus financial fall-out.
Caretaker boss Alec Cleland is working with head of football operations Kirsten Robertson on which out-of-contract players will be offered new deals.
Talks have already begun with one of them, midfielder Murray Davidson.
