Duo set for Dale exit
Kevin Amankwaah and Simon Hackney look set to leave Rochdale after rejecting new contracts.
Amankwaah joined Dale on a short-term deal in January when caretaker manager Chris Beech was at the helm ahead of John Coleman's appointment.
The centre-back went on to make 16 appearances, faring far better than former Colchester midfielder Hackney, who was restricted to two late-season substitute appearances after an abdominal injury decimated his debut campaign at Spotland.
Brian Barry-Murphy has agreed terms on a new deal, while offers remain on the table for fellow midfielder Joe Thompson and striker Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro.
"Simon Hackney and Kevin Amankwaah have rejected the deals on offer to them, Brian Barry-Murphy is going to re-sign for us and I'm still waiting on decisions for Joe Thompson and Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro," Coleman confirmed on Rochdale's official website.
