After a below par campaign last time out, having been one game away from the Premier League 12 months ago, boss Russell Martin is set to oversee a significant squad restructure.

Dhanda departs after joining Swansea from the Reds in 2018, and made 63 appearances in total for the club.

Former Bristol City midfielder Korey Smith and ex-Leicester goalkeeper Ben Hamer will also be shown the exit door when their contracts expire.

Smith, 31, has been an important part of the first-team during his time in south Wales, making 77 appearances across two seasons.
