Huddersfield head coach Ian Watson has called it the right time for Aidan Sezer to move on.
The Australian halfback will be Leeds Rhinos player next year, but Watson has described that as the “best” decision.
“It’s right for Aidan to move on,” Watson said.
“Aidan’s made his decision now. We spoke six or seven weeks ago about which way we wanted to go.
“Aidan’s made his decision now and I think that’s the best for him and the best for us now.”
Sezer is currently out of action due to an injury sustained in the All Stars victory over England in June and Watson was keen to ensure the 30-year-old is distanced from meetings etc.
“He’s had the operation. He was in the other day and is doing his recovery procedures with the physio staff and his conditioning work with the S and Cs to make sure he is in good condition for next year and when he goes to Leeds.
“For him, it’s about focusing on his own recovery now and his rehab.
“He won’t be involved in certain types of meetings now as he won’t be with us next year.
“But I just think for the group it’s important we focus on what we have and not what’s not here.”
