Cam Ellis-Yolmen has decided to pursue his rights as an unrestricted free agent and will leave Adelaide after eight years.

Ellis-Yolmen managed 39 AFL games, mainly as a midfielder, and held a rookie contract in 2019.

Crows General Manager List Management and Strategy Justin Reid thanked the 26-year-old for his contribution.

“Cam has been a valued member of our playing group and has shown great resilience to overcome his share of injuries,” Reid said.

“We wish him every success in the next stage of his football journey and he will always be part of the Crows family.”

The AFL’s free agency period commences on Friday October 4.
