GEELONG'S decision to delist three players on Monday leaves the Cats with 14 players out-of-contract for next season. 

The Cats announced that midfielders James Parsons and Jacob Kennerley and Category B rookie Blake Schlensog wouldn't be offered new deals for next season.

Parsons, 23, played 35 games for the Cats after debuting in 2017, while Kennerley and Schlensog failed to break through for an AFL match in their two years at the club.  

"James, Jacob and Blake have all grown as players and people during their time at the club and we wish them well in their future endeavours," Cats head of football Simon Lloyd said. 

"Once a Geelong player, always a Geelong player and they will always be welcome at the club."
