Daniel Sturridge joins Trabzonspor on three-year deal

Daniel Sturridge has joined Trabzonspor on a three-year contract.

The former England striker has moved to Turkey after his Liverpool contract expired following six years at Anfield.

Sturridge had been linked with a host of clubs this summer with Marseille, DC United and Aston Villa all tipped to move for the 29-year-old.

But he failed to agree a move and he arrived in Turkey earlier this week ahead of his switch to Trabzonspor.

Sturridge, who has also had spells with Manchester City, Chelsea and Bolton, was given a two-week ban earlier this summer after being found guilty of breaching betting rules.

Sturridge joins former Chelsea teammate John Obi Mikel at Trabzonspor, who also signed Alexander Sorloth on loan from Crystal Palace this summer.
