The 27 year-old winger’s contract was due to run until 30 June 2016.

Hammill made 49 appearances in the 2013/14 season, finishing top of the Club’s assist chart.

Under Chris Powell as manager, however, he made one start and one substitute appearance at the start of the 2014/15 season before leaving to join Rotherham United on loan, where he made four starts and 10 substitute appearances.

This season he has played 18 competitive minutes for the first team this season across two substitute appearances.

After discussions with Adam, we made the decision that this was the best option for everyone concerned. The timing gives Adam the chance to find himself another club and make a clean start in his career.

Two teenagers stabbed close to Leeds West Indian Carnival route

Police are appealing for information after two teenagers were stabbed close to the Leeds West Indian Carnival route yesterday.

Officers called to Luxor Road, Harehills, shortly after 3.45pm, found two 17-year-old men with serious stab wounds.

They were taken to Leeds General Infirmary for treatment. One of them is currently in a serious but stable condition and the other has serious but not life-threatening injuries.

"We believe the incident took place in Lambton View which is close to the Leeds West Indian Carnival route and so would have been very busy at the time.

"We have spoken to a number of people who were at the scene but are still keen to hear from anyone who either witnessed the incident itself or who has any information that could assist the investigation.

"There is nothing to suggest the incident was linked to the carnival itself other than the location in which it occurred. Officers from the local neighbourhood policing team are conducting additional patrols in the area to reassure local residents.
