West Ham attacking coach Teddy Sheringham is in talks with Stevenage about becoming the replacement for Graham Westley.

Boro, relegated from League One on the final day of the season, confirmed via a statement on their website that the former Tottenham striker has opened a dialogue with the club.

It would see the 49-year-old take charge in the fourth tier next season in what would be his first managerial job.

“Graham Westley’s agreement ends on 31 May and his team couldn’t have done more from a results viewpoint this season, but Graham’s been Stevenage manager for 8 of the past 12 years and that’s a long time at this level of football,” a club statement read.

Sheringham has been working the Hammers’ forwards for the last year.
