Defender Aaron Phillips is also out of contract and will be invited to continue his rehabilitation with the club following injury.
Caretaker manager Dean Austin said, “We had meetings with the players at Sixfields on Tuesday and I would like to extend the thanks and best wishes of the club to those who are leaving us.
“With Aaron Phillips, we think it is only right and proper that because he was injured playing for the club, we extend an offer to continue his rehab here to get him fully fit.
“Talks have begun with Brendan (Moloney) and also Leon (Barnett). Leon’s second year has clauses and options linked to it and with both Brendan and Leon we are looking to see if an agreement can be reached that suits both the club and the player.
“David Cornell has extended his contract and will be staying with the club while Leon Lobjoit, Raheem Hanley and Kevin Luckassen will depart and we wish them well. Chris Long, Regan Poole and Matt Grimes will be returning to parent clubs, we thank all three for their efforts and wish them well for the future.”
