Sheringham, 39, is the oldest outfield player in the Premiership
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."
