Former Liverpool and England striker Daniel Sturridge has joined Trabzonspor on a three-year deal, the Turkish Super League side said on Wednesday.

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.
