Aidan Sezer, a key figure in Canberra's charge to the 2019 NRL grand final, has played his last match Super League match for Huddersfield after agreeing to join Leeds for 2022.
Sezer, who was short-listed for Man of Steel in his first season in Super League in 2020, is currently sidelined with an ankle injury sustained while playing for the Combined Nations All Stars against England in June.
"Aidan and I spoke about six or seven weeks ago about which way we wanted to go," Huddersfield coach Ian Watson said.
"Aidan's made his decision and I think that's the best for him and the best for us.
"For the group, it's important that we concentrate on what we do have next year, not on what we don't have and we move forward together."
Watson also confirmed former Newcastle prop James Gavet has played his last match for the club.
The 31-year-old Australian has made 21 appearances for the Giants since joining them from the Knights ahead of the 2020 season but has been given permission to return home for personal reasons.
