Shaun Higgins has quit the Western Bulldogs after reportedly rejecting a two-year deal from the club.
Higgins’ manager, Bruce Kaider, told AFL.com.au that the utility wished to exercise his rights as a free agent.
“Shaun has informed the Bulldogs that he wishes to exercise his rights as a free agent and, more than that, would like to continue his career at another club,” Kaider said.
“Shaun believes that it’s in his best interests – on and off the field – to have a fresh start.
“He’s got a good relationship with the Bulldogs and I think they will respect his wishes and not hold him back.
“There is a real mutual respect between both parties.”
It is believed Higgins’ likely destination will be North Melbourne.
