Kent have released their veteran seam bowler, Alamgir Sheriyar, and allowed the opening batsman, Michael Carberry, to talk to other counties.
Sheriyar was the first player to make a loan move when he joined from Worcestershire last season but, like Carberry, his first-team opportunities were limited at Kent. Carberry joined Kent from Surrey in 2003 and made just 27 first-class appearances for the county, scoring three hundreds.
Kent also announced contract extensions for Min Patel, Martin Saggers, James Tredwell, Robert Ferley and Joe Denly. Wicketkeeper Richard Piesley, 19, has been released.
