If the landlord unreasonably refuses to assign your lease you can terminate early, and if the landlord unreasonably refuses to accept a subletter, you can still sublet. If you sublet the lease stays in your name and you are ultimately responsible, but the landlord has to have a good reason for refusing to allow you to sublet the place.

I would start by asking him what he thinks though. Be vague and don't tell him you already have a concrete plan, just ask in general, tell him you are thinking about it and wonder if he would rather you relinquished your lease or found a sublettor.
