Daniel Sturridge agrees three-year deal with Trabzonspor following Liverpool exit
Having left Liverpool when his contract expired at the end of the 2018-19 season, Daniel Sturridge has agreed terms with Turkish Super Lig side Trabzonspor.
Daniel Sturridge has agreed a three-year contract with Trabzonspor, the Turkish Super Lig side have confirmed. The striker, who left Liverpool at the end of last season, is set to join his new club until 2022, with the option of an extra year.
Sturridge was released by the European champions when his contract expired in June after six years at Anfield, in which he scored 67 goals in 160 appearances. In July, the 29-year-old was fined £75,000 and banned for six weeks - four of which were suspended - for breaching betting rules in English football.
Sturridge, who was free to play again from 31 July, said it was "extremely disappointing" to hear the Football Association would be appealing against what the governing body considered to be an insufficient punishment. "I will continue to defend the case and the appeal," he said.
Trabzonspor finished fourth in the Süper Lig last season, six points behind champions Galatasaray. They face AEK in a Europa League play-off first leg on Thursday.
