Eels hooker Nathan Peats is a good chance to return from injury in Round 6.

Parramatta hooker Nathan Peats has agreed to terms to play for the Gold Coast Titans for the remainder of 2016 and the 2017 seasons.

The 25-year-old, who has played 89 NRL games for Parramatta and South Sydney and has also played back row, will leave Sydney for the Gold Coast in coming days.

There will be no further comment from the Gold Coast club at this stage.

PARRAMATTA EELS RELEASE NATHAN PEATS

The Parramatta Eels have today released Nathan Peats from the remainder of his 2016 contract to take up an opportunity with the Gold Coast Titans immediately. 

"Since he joined the Eels, Nathan has taken advantage of the opportunity to play first grade for Parramatta with dedication, toughness and focus," Head Coach Brad Arthur said. 

"Nathan has conducted himself with professionalism and dignity throughout what has been a really difficult process, and it’s very tough to see him go under these circumstances."

The club is still working closely with the NRL regarding the salary cap and will provide further updates when available.
