Ex-West Ham defender Ferdinand signs for Thailand's Police United

Former West Ham United and Sunderland defender Anton Ferdinand has moved to Thailand's Police United.

Ferdinand has signed for Police United in the Thai Premier League in a bid to revive his career, and says Muangthong United's Jay Bothroyd convinced him to make the switch.

Ferdinand had a sorry time in the Turkish Super Lig last season, making just three appearances for Antalyaspor as they were relegated and six on loan to Bursaspor.

"I don't know much about Thai football," said Ferdinand, as reported by Bangkok Post.

"But I have talked to Jay Bothroyd. He told me that Thai football had changed a lot over the years with a lot of professional players.

"The weather here will not be a problem for me.

"My parents were born in a hot country (Saint Lucia) and I will be able to adapt to the weather here."
