Former Wigan Athletic star Shaun Maloney has been offered fresh terms to remain with Hull following their relegation to the Championship.
But centre-back Alex Bruce – who spent the second half of the season on loan at the DW Stadium – has been released.
The Tigers announced their retained list on Wednesday and confirmed there is an offer on the table for Maloney to stay on.
The 34-year-old originally penned a two-year deal with Hull in 2015 after a spell with MLS side Chicago Fire, and featured in 14 games this term.
He moved to America in January 2015 during the clear-out under then-Latics boss Malky Mackay.
Definitely heading out of the exit door is Bruce, after five years at Hull.
Bruce, the son of ex-Tigers and Latics boss Steve, won two promotions and played 104 games for Hull.
He had already confirmed his departure was imminent earlier this week, tweeting: “The injury has made this season a tough one but I’m looking forward to next season wherever that may be”.
Bruce joined Latics in January this year, but managed only two appearances due to fitness issues.
