Teddy shuns Spurs for Irons
cut n paste from the BBC.
West Ham striker Teddy Sheringham has revealed he turned down the chance to join Tottenham for the third time in his career in January.
Spurs made a bid for the former England star, who will be 40 in April, during the transfer window.
He said: "There was a chance to go to Tottenham and West Ham manager Alan Pardew said if I really wanted to go he would not stand in my way.
"But he made it clear he wanted me to stay and I enjoy playing for West Ham."
Sheringham is the Premiership's oldest outfield player and he played for Tottenham from 1992 to 1997 and 2001 to 2003.
He told Sky Sports: "The grass is not always greener on the other side.
"The manager is doing a great job, there are a great bunch of players here and I am getting satisfaction day in, day out."
Well done, Edward!
