Daniel Sturridge In Talks With Trabzonspor Over Move
Daniel Sturridge's representatives are currently in talks with Trabzonspor regarding a potential move.
Sturridge, capped 26 times by England, was released by Liverpool in the summer three days after winning the Champions League in Madrid and is still looking for a new club.
And according to Eren Sarigul from ESPN, the Turkish outfit have offered the 29-year old a two-year contract and negotiations are said to be progressing well with agents based in Turkey operating on the striker's behalf.
Should Sturridge make the move, he would link up with his former Chelsea teammate John Obi Mikel, who recently put pen to paper with Trabzonspor after leaving Middlesbrough.
It's said that there is an option for an extended contract and a sizeable signing-on bonus for the former Manchester City man, while there is also Europa League football on the table after Trabzonspor finished fourth in the Turkish top flight last season.
Sturridge is currently in the middle of a six-week ban from the FA for being found guilty of breaching betting regulations. He is yet to appeal the charge but because four weeks of the ban have been suspended, he is able to resume playing again from 31 July onwards.
After joining in a £12 million deal in 2013, Sturridge scored 67 goals in 160 appearances but eventually fell down the pecking order after suffering persistent injuries.
Is a switch to Turkey the next best step for him or would he be better off staying in England?
