Titans swoop for Manly skipper Lyon

The Gold Coast Titans have made an audacious attempt to poach Manly captain Jamie Lyon.

The Titans are desperate to add a strike centre to their line-up after releasing Beau Champion and missing out on Michael Jennings who signed with Roosters on Tuesday.

The Titans have tabled a long-term deal for the premiership-winning centre, who could command up to $500,000 per annum.

Lyon met Sea Eagles general manager David Perry on Friday morning to discuss the development. However, a source said Lyon was committed to the club.

‘‘He's had a lot of money thrown at him ... but he wants to stay,’’ the source said.
