After a protracted bidding war, the Gold Coast Titans have finally got their man with Broncos forward David Fifita agreeing to a three-year deal at the club.
The former Keebra Park junior will once again call the Gold Coast home after signing a three year deal from 2021.
The deal is understood to be worth a massive $3.25 million.

The 20-year-old has been torn over his future, reportedly agreeing to join the Titans earlier this month before changing his mind to stay with Brisbane.
But the Titans upped their offer to secure Fifita’s services, blowing the Bronco’s offer out of the water, with the deal finalised this weekend.
Titans coach Justin Holbrook says he’s excited about the addition of Fifita to the forward pack.
“As a coach we want to bring players to our club to improve the squad and David will definitely do that,” Holbrook said.
“David already has a close connection with our club through some of our players which is an important element that I am looking for as we build this team.”
Gold Coast CEO Steve Mitchell says this is a great result for the Titans.
“We welcome David to the Titans and are so excited that he has chosen to play his footy on the Gold Coast,” Mitchell said.
“We are looking forward to getting to know the Fifita family.
“Family is central to David’s decision and it is a core piece of what we are building at the Club.
“We wish David well for the rest of the season in Brisbane and for the State of Origin series to follow and can’t wait to welcome him into our squad later this year.”
