The 20-year-old was handed a six-month extension to his contract by former manager John Hughes in the summer.
However, despite being named as a substitute on a handful of occasions, the midfielder - one of seven to graduate to the first-team from the double-winning under-19 side of two seasons ago - will be leaving at the end of the month without having played a competitive game.
The left-sided player grew up a Hibs supporter and has been with club for a decade, but was last night facing up to the pain of seeing his dreams of a top-team future at Easter Road ended.
He said: "I'm absolutely gutted. I'm a Hibs fan and a local boy and that makes it even worse. I've been there for so long now and it has just come to an end."
