Police say they do not appear to have ever been tagged and are of a Texel or Hampshire Down breed or similar.

Anyone who has any information about the lambs, or have had any stolen recently, is asked to contact North Yorkshire Police.

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.

– Chris Powell, Huddersfield Town manager
