Sheffield Wednesday have released Zimbabwean youngster Tafadzwa Tapudzai after six years with the club’s academy.
The 18-year-old Bulawayo-born was released along with four other Academy players.
A statement by the club confirmed the departures, saying: ” Jake Bradford, Danai Rhule, Josh Chapman, Tafadzwa Tapudzai and Kamil Maciag have been released.
“Sheffield Wednesday would like to place on record our thanks to all those leaving Hillsborough and wish the players all the best for the future.”
Another Zimbabwean at Sheffield Wednesday, Sean Fusire, will remain at the club on their return to the English Championship next season.
