In his TwitLonger, Ryan said:

"After an amazing two years there, I have left Hashtag United by mutual consent. When discussing my contract both myself and the club felt that now could be the best time for me to take on a new challenge and I am grateful to the club for allowing me to do so.

"In my time at Hashtag I’ve progressed not just as an esports competitor; but also as an individual, and Hashtag United have contributed massively to that. However, I believe this decision is ultimately best for myself as I look for a new chapter in my professional FIFA career.

"I’ve made great friends through this team and grateful for all current/previous teammates I’ve competed alongside, as well as all the opportunities that have come along with it. I respect everything Hashtag United have accomplished on both the football field and the virtual one; with the hopes that the success continues.

"Thank you to everyone for the support over the past two years it was amazing - Onto another stage of this journey.

"Moving into FIFA 20 I will be looking to join a new team. My DMs are open and my email is in my bio for any enquires."
