Cherry-Evans visited the club last week to inspect club facilities after the Titans reportedly tabled a $3 million bid for the Sea Eagles half-back.
Five Titans players are now set to face court next week on charges of supplying cocaine, including star captain Greg Bird.
Despite the developments, Titans chief executive Graham Annesley says a move to the Gold Coast club would still be a “great opportunity” for the 25-year-old.
“The decision about Daly’s future is really with Daly but hopefully one of the things that is coming through loud and clear from the adversity that we’re facing at the moment is that this club is absolutely determined to turn this around,” Annesley was quoted by AAP.
“We want a club that has a culture that the community can be proud of, that all the players and people associated with the club can be proud of.
“Hopefully he sees that there is a great opportunity at this club should he decide to get involved with it.”
The Titans open its season against the Wests Tigers on March 7.
