Kevin Proctor scored the Kiwis' only try against the Kangaroos in Perth.

Kiwis forward Kevin Proctor is reportedly a target for Gold Coast Titans.

Proctor still has two years to run on his contract with Melbourne Storm, which has been the only club he's played for in his entire career.

But foxsports.com.au report the Titans are prepared to offer Proctor a lucrative three-year deal worth AU$1.6million (NZ$1.7m).

The 27-year-old, born in Te Kuiti, moved to the Gold Coast aged 12 and it's claimed Proctor admits a move away from Melbourne is an option because he met his partner at Palm Beach Currumbin High School on the Gold Coast. They've had two children and her family still live there.

Proctor, who's played 13 times for the Kiwis between 2012 and 2016, said he would make a decision after returning from the Four Nations, which starts in England later this month.

"I've been talking to my manager," Proctor told foxsports.com.au.

"I don't know what I'm doing yet. I've just been letting my manager do all the talking. I've been pretty busy with footy.

"I was telling him not to disturb me too much so I could concentrate on footy and let him sort it all out behind the scenes."

Proctor revealed he has option to go the Gold Coast and said it's 'enticing'.

"I honestly don't know what I'm going to do yet. I've given it a bit of thought with my partner.

"Her family is up there so it's enticing but we haven't really had a good sit down and think about it yet."

Proctor has played almost 200 games for Melbourne (179) since his debut in 2008 and scored the Kiwis' only try in their 26-6 test defeat to the Kangaroos in Perth last Saturday.

The Kiwis' opening game of the Four Nations is against England at Huddersfield on Sunday October 30 at 2:30am (NZ time).
