Following a meeting with Panthers officials this morning, Matt Moylan will be taking a break from the game to deal with some personal issues.
This follows a lot of speculation about the star's future at the Panthers, however the club have maintained confidence that Moylan will see out his deal.
The Panthers have released a statement on the matter.
"We held a long discussion with Matt and his manager this morning," the statement says.
"As a result of this meeting we can confirm Matt is 100 per cent committed to his future at the Panthers and we are 100 per cent committed to Matt.
"We see Matt as a valuable asset to our club and hope he has a long and successful future as a Panther.
"In the short term we are giving Matt some time away from the game to deal with some personal issues and we hope that people will respect his privacy.
"It's disappointing that this has made its way to the media and from this point on there will be no further comment from the club, Matt or his management.
"We look forward to seeing Matt re-join the group as soon as possible."
