Sheringham 'offered Sydney deal'

Australian side Sydney FC have offered a deal to West Ham's ex-England striker Teddy Sheringham, according to reports.

Sheringham, 41 next month, is believed to have been offered a year's contract and the option of a second year at the A-League club.

"He's still playing at the top level and is, by any standards, an excellent player," club chief executive George Perry told Sydney's Daily Telegraph.

"He has a wealth of experience and his presence would put bums on seats."

The paper also said Sydney moved for Sheringham after a bid for Charlton striker Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink fell through over the player's salary demands.

Former England captain Terry Butcher managed Sydney from 2006 up until last month when he parted company with the club.
