South Sydney's Dylan Walker bravely played on with an injured left arm during the Round 3 clash against the Wests Tigers.

The South Sydney Rabbitohs have granted player Dylan Walker a release from the remaining year of his playing contract.

Walker made a request of the club earlier this month to be released from the final year of his contract with the Rabbitohs, in order to take up an extended deal with another NRL club.

The club has now granted that release.

Head coach Michael Maguire joined Rabbitohs members in wishing Walker well with his future.

"We wish Dylan all the very best in pursuing the next phase of his career," Maguire said.

"I have known Dylan since he was 17 years of age, we have had some great times together and he has many good attributes."

"I spoke to Dylan about staying, however I appreciate his desire to secure his long-term playing future."
