As an unrestricted free agent, Chol's move can be confirmed as early as October 1 when the free agency period begins.
"We're extremely excited that Mabior Chol will be going to the Gold Coast Suns for four years," Chol's manager Ralph Carr told Channel Seven.
"It was important for him to go home and get more opportunity to play senior football."
Chol qualifies as a free agent having previously been delisted by the Tigers and re-rookied at the end of 2018.
Depending on the size of his new deal, the Tigers will receive a free agency compensation pick.
