Gordon, 28, will leave current club Penrith Panthers at the end of the season. He has become a fan favourite whilst in Penrith, with his ability to score from anywhere on the field and his consistent goalkicking.
For most of his career Gordon was a winger but in 2010 due to injury problems at the club he was moved to full-back, a position he then made his own.
Panthers general manager Phil Gould showed his disappointment in the Australian media: “It’s sad to lose a player of Michael’s calibre, and such a wonderful person.”
The currently injured Gordon represented New South Wales in the 2010 State of Origin series.
