GOLD COAST - Gold Coast have re-signed NSW Origin forward Greg Bird on a four-year deal reportedly worth $550,000 a season.

Bird knocked back several lucrative offers from rival NRL clubs to remain at the Titans until the end of the 2017 season.

Titans CEO David May paid tribute to Bird's loyalty.

"I think the fact that Greg has committed to the club long-term when he had big money offers from elsewhere says a lot about the type of character he is and also how much the Titans mean to him," May said.

Bird, 28, has played 164 NRL matches including 58 for the Titans. May hoped to know more about the possible recruitment of Penrith star Michael Jennings by Monday.
