Hull FC have released Australian scrum-half Jacob Miller from the last year of his contract, the First Utility Super League club have announced.

The 22-year-old joined the Black and Whites from Wests Tigers midway through the 2013 season but fell out of favour last year and did not report back for pre-season training this week.

Now Hull have confirmed they have paid off the player, who is expected to stay in Super League.

“The club have agreed a termination fee with the player who is now a free agent and widely expected to join another Super League club imminently,” Hull said in a statement.

“Hull FC would like to thank Jacob for his contribution to the club over the last 18 months.”

Miller made 24 appearances, including the 2013 Tetley’s Challenge Cup final at Wembley.
