Former Liverpool and England striker Daniel Sturridge has joined Trabzonspor on a three-year deal, the Turkish Super Lig club say.

The 29-year-old was released by Liverpool at the end of his contract in June, ending a six-year stay at the Merseyside club where he scored 67 goals in 160 matches in all competitions.

Trabzonspor confirmed that they had landed the free agent in a post on Twitter, which contained a picture of the England international wearing the club's jersey.

Sturridge began his professional career at Manchester City in 2006, moving to Premier League rivals Chelsea three years later before sealing a switch to Liverpool in 2013.

He also had loan spells at Bolton Wanderers and West Bromwich Albion.

Sturridge won the Premier League, two FA Cups and the Champions League at Chelsea. He added another Champions League medal at Liverpool last season.
