Former West Ham striker Teddy Sheringham could be in line for a return to Upton Park as Sam Allardyce's new attacking coach.

The 48-year-old, who spent three years as a Hammer between 2004 and 2007, has revealed he has held talks with Allardyce over a potential role as an attacking coach.

Sheringham scored 28 goals in just 48 league starts for the Irons, helping the club back into the Premier League in 2005 via the Championship play-offs.

Speaking to the Daily Mirror, Sheringham said: “I spoke to Sam and asked for a few days to think it over. It certainly appeals.

“The job is on a part-time basis, a couple of days a week and I’ll be on the bench for home games."

The former Manchester United and Spurs forward added: “The club is not far from me and one for which I have a lot of affection. I really enjoyed my time there.

“It is also a chance for me to experience the coaching side of the game, something I have never really done before. I would enjoy working with the front players.”

Sheringham finally hung up his boots in 2008 whilst at Colchester United at the age of 42.
