The club can also confirm youngsters Scott MacAulay, Zach Szemis, Stuart Close and Jamie Hamilton will be leaving the club.

The Dons boss commented. "It's one of the least enjoyable aspects of the job to tell players that they won't be staying and I would like to thank all of them for their contribution to this football club. Each of them are excellent professionals and we wish them all the very best in their future careers."

Derek also confirmed that striker Josh Magennis will be offered a new deal.
