Sturridge is understood to have turned down big money offers from Saudi Arabia and Egypt with his focus on finding the right club rather than bumper wages.

Championship clubs have also shown interest though he believes he still has a lot to offer at the top level. As a free agent he can still move to clubs outside tonight’s 11pm deadline.

The former England striker scored seven goals in 16 appearances in all competitions for Trabzonspor last season.

Sturridge last played in the Premier League for Liverpool in the 2018-19 campaign, he notched a total of four goals and two assists in 27 appearances for the Reds.

The last of his 26 England caps came against Lithuania in October 2017, in total he scored eight goals for the Three Lions.
