Jay Bothroyd

Former QPR striker Jay Bothroyd has signed for Thai Premier League club Muangthong United on a two-year deal.

Bothroyd, who received his only England cap in 2010, has been without a club since being released by QPR in June.

He started his career at Arsenal in 1998 but made his first senior appearance when he signed for Coventry.

The 31-year-old also played for Blackburn, Charlton, Wolves, Stoke, Cardiff and Sheffield Wednesday in Britain.

He has previously had a spell playing abroad, with Italian side Perugia from 2003 until 2005.

Muangthong, who appointed Englishman Scott Cooper as manager earlier this month, finished second in the 2013 Thai Premier League. Former England striker Robbie Fowler was their player-manager in 2011.
