Play-Off bound Derby County have released five out-of-contract players.

Goalkeeper Ross Atkins, defenders James O'Connor, Valentin Gjokaj and Michael Hoganson and striker Callum Ball have all been let go.

Atkins made only one first-team appearance for the Rams while Ball scored three times in 31 appearances.

O'Connor played 23 times and also had a spell on loan at Bristol City this season before suffering a thigh injury which required surgery.

Gjokaj and Hoganson made a combined total of 10 appearances for County.
