Huddersfield have agreed to mutually terminate Dale Ferguson’s contract.
The Scottish international, who has spent the last three seasons with the Giants, has suffered numerous injury setbacks of late.
Despite his deal running until the end of 2020, both parties have agreed to the termination with managing director Richard Thewlis thanking Ferguson for his service.
“Dale has been an outstanding player and person at our club and for his country,” he told the club’s website.
“I have personally spent many hours watching him play for the Giants and his country and in particular in his time with Scotland he was a real leader for us.
“The sad reality though is that his game time and availability has not been where either party would wish and its with sadness we have come to this announcement today.
“Dale did get a knock on his comeback game and needs to rest up for a period while that’s assessed and worked through which rule him out for the remainder of this year.
“He had a year left to run with us but, as I say, we’ve come to an amicable arrangement which for Dale allows a fresh start and for us frees up a slot for one of our younger players to strive for in next years 25 man Super League squad.”
