The Gold Coast Titans have launched a bid to sign Eels playmaker Corey Norman for next season and beyond.
Norman and his manager met with Garth Brennan to potentially finalise a deal that could see him partner Ashley Taylor in the halves.
Gold Coast looms as an ideal location for the 27-year old, closer to his family and home.
The talented but somewhat troubled star has been in the public spotlight for all the wrong reasons – and the Titans are watching his off-field behaviour closely, hoping that he will shed his ‘bad boy’ reputation.
In other news, another Eel could be following Norman to the Titans. Bevan French has hit the open market, unhappy that he is a second-choice fullback.
It has been understood that French has been identified alongside Norman as a Titans’ recruitment target.
