At the end of the Natsu basho we heard reports that both Wakatoba and Sumanofuji had announced their retirements.

Makushita West 22 and former Makuuchi Wakatoba, 29, of
Oguruma beya has announced his retirement on day 14.
After finishing the basho with 1 win and 6 losses, he
stated he "lost the will to continue."

Former Juryo Makushita East 10 Sumanofuji, 29, of
Nakamura beya has announced his retirement on May 27.
He finished with 1 win and 6 losses this basho.

However, neither of them appear on the list of retirements after the basho.  Can anyone shed some light on the status of these 2 former Sekitori.
