Titans lure Roosters veteran Gordon

Michael Gordon has been allowed to leave Sydney Roosters and join Gold Coast Titans on a two-year deal.

Gordon was released from the final year of his contract with the Roosters in order to move his wife and children nearer to their extended family.

Titans coach Garth Brennan decided to sign the 34-year-old full-back following Jarryd Hayne's exit to Parramatta Eels.

"Michael is a player that everyone loves playing with and is the ultimate professional in every aspect of the game," Brennan said.

"We have a number of young players in the squad and Michael will help them with their development as well as be a leader among the group.

"His experience as well as his ability as a goal kicker will make him a valuable commodity here at the Titans."

One player who will not be leaving the Roosters is five-eighth Luke Keary, who signed a three-year contract extension on Tuesday.
