Cherry-Evans last month signed a four-year multi-million dollar deal with the Titans starting next season, however reports emerged yesterday that the playmaker is now considering staying at the Manly Sea Eagles.
Gold Coast chief executive Graham Annesley said media speculation surrounding Cherry-Evans were simply “untrue”.
“Following media speculation over the last few hours I have spoken directly with Gavin Orr and Chris Orr of Pacific Sports Management,” Titans CEO Graham Annesley said this evening,” Annesley said in a club statement.
“I have been assured that any suggestion Daly Cherry Evans will not be honouring his contract with the Titans is untrue.”
Cherry-Evans and halves partner Kieran Foran have both signed deals to leave the Sea Eagles in 2016, with Foran putting pen-to-paper to a lucrative contract with the Parramatta Eels.
Both players have been critisised by Sea Eagles fans following the sides poor start to 2015 that has seen Manly sit at the foot of the NRL ladder after six rounds.
The Sea Eagles will be looking to get back to winning ways when they face the Canterbury Bulldogs on Friday.
