Three more players have departed Carlton, with the club making more list changes.

Dylan Buckley and Ciaran Sheehan have been told they will not be offered another contract in 2018, while the club has announced it will mutually part ways with Rhys Palmer.

Head of football Andrew McKay thanked Buckley and Sheehan, and explained Palmer was not able to cope with the demands of AFL.

The 28-year-old had another year left on his current contract.

“Dylan has been a popular member of our playing group and was always a team-first player. He is a wonderful character and contributed in a positive way to the culture of our football club,” he said on Friday.

“Ciaran had an unfortunate string of injuries but showed terrific resilience his time at the Club. He made the most of his opportunities and we will miss his humility and determination.

“We thank Rhys for his contribution this season too, arriving from GWS as a hard-bodied midfielder who provided important experience for our young players. It’s unfortunate that his body is not able to cope with the rigours of AFL anymore and we wish him well. 

“It’s always a difficult time of year for our departing players, and we thank them for their contribution to both our AFL and VFL teams and wish them all the best for their future endeavours.”

It totals 10 changes to Carlton's list since the end of the season.

Bryce Gibbs has departed for Adelaide, Dennis Armfield, Daniel Gorringe and Matthew Korcheck have retired and Kristian Jaksch, Liam Sumner and Andrew Gallucci have been delisted.
