Jamie Simpson became the latest casualty of South Sydney's dogged pursuit of Greg Inglis on Friday, with the utility back signing a deal with Huddersfield.

Hot on the heels of centre Beau Champion signing with Melbourne to accommodate the arrival of Queensland and Australia star Inglis, Simpson will leave the NRL with 10 months remaining on his contract.

Simpson, who played 37 games for the Rabbitohs over three seasons, was excited about the move.

"It's a great opportunity for me to play rugby league in other countries and experience the rest of world," he said.

"I'm grateful to the Rabbitohs for the opportunities they've given me over the past three seasons both on and off the field."

Simpson leaves the club with the best wishes of CEO Shane Richardson, who praised the 24-year-old's contributions on and off the field for the club.

"This is a great opportunity for Jamie to take up a contract in the English Super League and also explore a bit of the world whilst playing rugby league," Richardson said.

"We wish him the best of luck in his move to England."
