Squad details continue to take shape.
Colchester United have revealed their retained list, as they begin to shape their squad for the new season.
Discussions have been had with a number of players over the last two weeks since the 2015/16 campaign came to a close and a number of players will be moving onto pastures new.
Joe Edwards is one of those who could be moving on, and Director of Football Tony Humes said: "Joe signed a one year deal when he first joined us and understandably, he is keen to play at the highest level possible.
"He has had an excellent season and is taking his opportunity to see what else is out there, but we would be interested in signing him should the opportunity arise."
The summer also sees Tosin Olufemi leave the club after seven years with the U's. He played 26 times for the first team, but will now seek to kick start his career elsewhere.
Tony added: "Some of the lads have got to try and forge a career for themselves now.
"Tosin has been with us for seven years and has been a pleasure to have around the club, but he needs to kick start his career by playing regularly somewhere else now and we wish him all the best with his footballing future."
Joe and Tosin are among nine players not offered a contract with the U's, with Darren Ambrose, Nicky Shorey, Elliott Parish and Marvin Sordell leaving this summer.
