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!
