Kevin Proctor celebrates his try against the Cowboys in Round 21.

Titans sign Kevin Proctor

The Gold Coast Titans have moved quickly to replace Greg Bird, signing Kevin Proctor from the Melbourne Storm on a four-year deal.

The second-rower has played all his 179 NRL games for the Storm, having debuted in Round 10, 2008, while he has also played 15 Tests for New Zealand.

The 27-year-old scored six tries in 24 games for the Storm in 2016.

"This is a great opportunity to return home to the Gold Coast with my young family to be closer to all of our family," Proctor said.

"It has been a long process and I needed to feel comfortable with the decision as I have had a successful time at the Melbourne Storm and made some great friends, but now I am looking forward to joining Neil and the Titans players and contributing to the team's success."
