Arsenal are to release seven players from their contracts this summer, including goalkeeper Manuel Almunia.
Almunia, 35, signed for Arsenal from Celta Vigo in 2004 but has struggled for a consistent first-team role at the club since the switch, a cause not helped by a number of high-profile errors which led to criticism from some fans.
During the 2011-12 campaign he was loaned out to West Ham for a month, making four Championship appearances for the Hammers, before returning to Emirates Stadium.
Almunia failed to be called upon by manager Arsene Wenger following his comeback and will subsequently leave the club on June 30, when his current contract expires.
The shot-stopper, who made a total of 175 appearances for the Gunners, is joined by George Brislen-Hall, Gavin Hoyte, Sean McDermott, Rhys Murphy, James Campbell and Jeffrey Monakana in leaving Arsenal.
Arsenal also confirmed midfielder Jack Wilshere had now undergone a "minor procedure" on his left knee as part of his continued rehabilitation from an ankle problem which ruled him out of all last term.
"This procedure is not expected to significantly affect Jack's return date in the summer," a club statement read.
