Wakefield Trinity have confirmed that Mikey Sio has left the club by mutual consent.
The 24-year-old joined Trinity in 2015 on an 18-month contract from Queensland Cup side Mackay Cutters. He penned a new two-year deal in 2016 which would have seen Sio remain at the club until the end of the 2018 season.
Sio played 39 games for Wakefield and had spells on loan at Dewsbury Rams and Halifax.
And the Samoa international thanked the club for their support in his time there.
He said: “I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here at Wakefield. I learned a lot as a player under both Brian Smith and Chris Chester.
“There is a good bunch of lads at the club who made me feel extremely welcome and at home and I will definitely miss the camaraderie within the team.
“I would like to thank the fans for their support, they welcomed me with open arms and even now when I walk around the town, they stop me for a chat. I would have to say that Wakefield Trinity are a club with the most passionate fans.”
And chairman Michael Carter was thankful for Sio’s efforts.
He said: “I would like to thank Mikey for his service to the club since arriving at a difficult time in 2015.
“His contribution was invaluable at that time, and I wish him every success in the future.”
