Former England striker Andy Carroll has signed for Amiens on a free transfer, the French second-tier club announced on Friday.

The 34-year-old was a free agent after triggering a release clause in his contract with English third-division side Reading.

Carroll, who scored twice in nine international appearances for England between 2010 and 2012, played in the Premier League for Newcastle, Liverpool and West Ham.

He will wear the number 99 shirt for Amiens, who finished 12th in Ligue 2 last season.

Liverpool's £35 million signing of Carroll from Newcastle in January 2011 broke the then British transfer record.

He went on to score 11 goals in 58 appearances in all competitions for the Reds before being sold to West Ham.
