Latrell Mitchell confirms departure from Sydney Roosters

Latrell Mitchell has announced his departure from the Sydney Roosters via an Instagram post.

Mitchell, 22, was granted leave of absence by the Roosters on Sunday and did not return to training with the club on Monday morning.

The Australian international won back-to-back premierships with the Roosters in 2018 and 2019, and is believed to be joining rivals South Sydney Rabbitohs for the 2020 season.

“I can not describe the way I feel right now but just wanted to let everyone know involved in my career through my stint here, I am so very grateful for you all,” he wrote in a post.

“Humbled to be able to play with such a rich history club. I didn’t think as a country boy I’d be able to transition to the city but roosters made that possible.

“Nothing has been made official as of yet. But my stay at the roosters has come to an end. On to the next chapter where ever that may be.”
