Another Gold Coast Titan linked to a mid-season switch

More trade rumours involving the Gold Coast Titans, with speculation Max King could be the next to leave.

The June 30 transfer deadline is quickly approaching, as clubs appear to be frantically throwing players around trying to sort themselves out before the cut-off.

The Titan’s recently locked down halfback Tanah Boyd from the Broncos this week, after losing Morgan Boyle and Jaxson Paulo in recent months.


But now, forward Max King has been linked with a shock move to the Melbourne Storm.

The 22-year-old has been approached by the league’s best team (currently top spot on the ladder), with rumours he’ll make the switch effective immediately.

Storm Coach Craig Bellamy says King’s been in his sights for a while.

“There’s a few things that have got to happen but we’d like to have Max at our club,” Bellamy said.

“At the end of the day it’s got to be the right decision for him and he’s got to get permission of the Titans as well.

“Hopefully something might be sorted there soon.”

It comes as the Gold Coast local struggles to get his field time for the bottom-of-the-ladder dwellers, after dropping off the reserves list again for tonight’s game against the Warriors.

King debuted for the side in 2017, and has played 38 games for the Titans.
