Valente & Castillo Depart
Valente and van der Meyde released, Castillo returns to Serbia after loan.
Everton have released Nuno Valente and Segundo Castillo has returned to Red Star Belgrade at the end of his loan spell.
The Club have also confirmed the departure of Andy van der Meyde at the end of his contract.
Youngsters John Irving, John Paul Kissock, Scott Spencer, Eunan O'Kane and Cory Sinnott have also been released by the Club.
Academy players Thomas McCready, Luke Powell, Michael Jensen and Daniel Redmond have also left.
Valente's departure comes at the end of an injury-hit season in which he made just two appearances.
Overall, the former Portuguese international made 60 appearances in his four seasons at Goodison Park.
Castillo's one-season loan stint at Everton has also come to an end, the Ecuadorian making 13 appearances and scoring once before heading back to his parent club in Serbia.
van der Meyde has had a turbulent stay on Merseyside since arriving in the summer of 2005, the winger battling against injuries, personal problems and disciplinary issues and showing only tiny glimpses of his quality.
He departs having made just 24 appearances in four seasons.
Of the youngsters, Kissock has appeared on the first team substitutes' bench this season, but none has a senior appearance to their name.
