Andrejs Everitt has been delisted

CARLTON utility Andrejs Everitt is among six Blues to have been delisted.

Mark Whiley, Jason Tutt, Dillon Viojo-Rainbow and rookies Andrew Gallucci and Billy Gowers have also been cut.

However, Gallucci and Gowers will continue training with the Blues in the hope of being re-rookied.

"Since arriving at the club, all six players have been professional in their approach to their careers and have shown dedication and commitment in developing their football," Carlton football manager Andrew McKay said on carltonfc.com.au

"We sincerely thank them for their contribution to Carlton and wish them all the best for the future."

The Blues were Everitt's third club, after he was drafted by the Western Bulldogs at No. 11 in 2006. Everitt was traded to the Sydney Swans in 2010 before joining the Blues at the end of 2013. 

The 27-year-old revealed the news in an Instagram post on Tuesday. He has played 131 games throughout his career and was Carlton's leading goalkicker last year. 

He is the younger brother of former ruckman Peter, who also played for three teams (St Kilda, Hawthorn and the Sydney Swans). 

Carlton has also delisted Matthew Dick, Jayden Foster and Clem Smith, while Michael Jamison, Andrew Walker and Cameron Wood have retired. Irishman Zach Tuohy was traded to Geelong.

The Blues have now turned over 28 players in the past two seasons.

Me.
