Daniel Sturridge Signs For Turkish Side Trabzonspor

Daniel Sturridge has signed for Turkish top-flight side Trabzonspor on a three-year deal.

The former Chelsea striker was released by European Champions Liverpool in the summer after a six-year stay during which he scored 67 goals in 160 appearances.

29-year-old Sturridge also played for Manchester City where he began his career before moving to Chelsea in 2009 with whom he won the English Premier League title.

He joins the six-time Turkish champions who finished fourth in the league last season.

They face Greek side AEK Athens in the Europa League play-off round as they look to reach the group stages of the competition.

In July he was banned from playing football for two weeks and fined £75,000 after being found guilty of breaching betting rules.
He was given a six-week ban, four of which were suspended, and was free to play again on 31 July.
