Despite being under contract until the end of the 2019 season, Peachey is set to walk out of the club 12 months early – or possibly sooner.
Channel 7 reporter Chris Garry broke the news on Twitter overnight following recent reports that the Gold Coast had ‘put down an offer that Penrith couldn’t match’.
More NRL news! I understand Panthers Tyrone Peachey to sign 3 year deal with Gold Coast starting in 2019. BUT he's a good chance of being there before June 30. Not happy at Penrith.

Peachey made the move from lock to the centres midway through 2016, scoring 10 tries in his final 16 games of the season.
Rumours have continued to circulate since Anthony Griffin’s arrival of Penrith of Peachey’s unrest at the foot of the mountains, which would even see the utility walk before the June 30 deadline.
Peachey’s exit comes as a massive blow to the Penrith outfit, coming just months after the exit of star junior and former captain Matt Moylan.
The Titans are expected to confirm the deal in coming weeks, as the Gold Coast outfit look to fill the hole in their salary cap left by Jarryd Hayne’s departure.
