Daniel Sturridge Wants Premier League Return

Daniel Sturridge is keen to reignite his playing career in the Premier League.

In an interview with Sky Sports, the former Liverpool and Chelsea striker said that he has “unfinished business” and wants to return to England’s top flight.

Capped by England on 26 occasions, the striker has been without a club since leaving Turkish side Trabzonspor in March amid controversy after being handed a four-month worldwide football ban for breaching the FA’s gambling regulations.

Striker Ready to Make a Comeback

Sturridge, still just 30 years old, now says he has maintained his training schedule and is ready for the next challenge following the expiration of his ban.

The man who formed part of Liverpool’s formidable attack alongside Luis Suarez dubbed the ‘SAS’ said: “I believe I’ve got a lot to give to the Premier League and I would say that’s my first choice. I do feel I have unfinished business so I would like to go back and play there.”

With 50 goals in 116 appearances for Liverpool during his last permanent spell in English football, there is no doubt Sturridge possesses the quality required in the top flight. However, during a loan spell with West Bromwich Albion at the back end of his time at Anfield, he failed to score in six appearances, epitomising his later time in England.

Sturridge had recaptured his form in Turkey, with four goals in 11 Super Lig appearances, and three in three games in the Turkish Cup; the signs of a return to somewhere near his best were positive.

Now available as a free agent, Sturridge has been linked with a host of clubs, both in the Premier League and abroad.

There will be a number of club monitoring Sturridge’s situation, seemingly now over his injury problems which marred his earlier career, the time might be right for a Premier League return for the former Liverpool man.
