Former England international and Manchester United striker Teddy Sheringham has agreed to become the new manager of League Two side Stevenage, reports Sky Sports journalist Amy Lewis.
Currently the attacking coach at Premier League club West Ham United, it will be the 49-year-old’s first managerial job.
Stevenage were hoping to make an announcement today but it is understood that it may now have to wait until the end of the season.
Graham Westley’s contract is set to expire at Broadhall Way and is expected not be renewed.
The Boro missed out on promotion to League One having lost to Southend United over the two-legs of the play-off semi-final.
Sheringham, who was appointed as the Hammers’ attacking coach last year, had a 25-year playing career which began at Millwall and enjoyed spells at Nottingham Forest and Tottenham Hotspur.
He then moved on to Manchester United were he stayed for four years, scoring an injury-time equaliser in their Champions League final victory over Bayern Munich in 1999.
The striker returned to Spurs and later had spells at Portsmouth, West Ham and Colchester United before retiring aged 42 in 2008.
Sheringham also won 51 caps and is the oldest goalscorer and outfield player in Premier League history.
