PAUL Scharner is one of eight players who have waved goodbye to Latics.

Loan stars Scharner (Hamburg), Joel Robles (Athletico Madrid) and Angelo Henriquez (Manchester United) will return to their parent clubs.

And five out-of-contract stars have also departed. They are Franco DiSanto, Antolin Alcaraz, Maynor Figueroa, Ronnie Stam and Albert Crusat.

Other stars may also depart if they attract interest from Premier League clubs, and fees can be agreed.

Latics have other players out of contract – such as Mike Pollitt, Adrian Lopez, Roman Golibart and David Jones – but they may extend their stay.
