With the news that Stevenage manager Graham Westley is likely to leave the club in the summer, it has emerged that former England and Tottenham striker Teddy Sheringham is the favourite to replace him at the Lamex Stadium, according to BBC Sport.
Sheringham, who has played for Millwall, Nottingham Forest, Tottenham, Manchester United, Portsmouth, West Ham and Colchester, could make his first venture into management if he does take the job.
The 49-year-old is currently employed at Premier League club West Ham as their attacking coach, but reports from The Guardian suggest that the Hammers have given Sheringham permission to speak to Stevenage.
The League Two club are yet to comment on the news, but have made it clear that Westley has not been offered an extension to his contract which expires in the summer.
Westley said to the Express after the Boro’s play-off semi final final loss; “We will see where things go from here. I am the Stevenage manager up until the end of May. There’s been no offer to me. The club is having a serious rethink about what it’s going to do for the future, so we’ll see how that pans out.”
