THE SYDNEY Swans have delisted Brandon Jack, Tyrone Leonardis and Michael Talia, while rookie Shaun Edwards has announced his retirement after 24 AFL games.  

Jack, the brother of Kieren, joined the Swans through the 2013 rookie draft and was elevated to the senior list the following year.

The 23-year-old has played 28 AFL games and this year captained the Swans NEAFL side to the Grand Final.

Leonardis was recruited to Sydney with pick No.51 in the 2015 NAB AFL Draft. The 20-year-old did not make his AFL debut.

Talia, the brother of Adelaide's Daniel, joined the Swans during the 2015 trade period, leaving the Bulldogs in controversial circumstances after playing 30 games in four seasons.

Controversy followed Talia to Sydney and in 2016 he received a good behaviour bond (but avoided a conviction) after pleading guilty to cocaine possession in August of that year. He was stood down by the Swans after the original charge and did not play another senior game following the club ban.

He finishes at Sydney with just the one game to his name in red and white.

Edwards, 23, became a Swan in last year's rookie draft after stints at both Essendon and GWS.

Swans football manager Tom Harley thanked all four players for their service.

"On behalf of everyone at the Sydney Swans I would like to thank Brandon, Tyrone, Michael and Shaun for their contribution to the club and wish them all the very best for the future," he said.
