Veteran West Ham United striker Teddy Sheringham has been offered a contract by A-League side Sydney FC, according to reports in Australia. The 40-year-old has not started a Premiership game for the Hammers in 2007 and is widely expected to leave Upton Park at the end of the season. The Australian side's chief executive George Perry told the Sydney Daily Telegraph: "He's still playing at the top level and is by any standards an excellent player. "He obviously has a wealth of experience and his presence would put bums on seats. He comes highly recommended and I think he would create a buzz around the club." Sheringham has scored 30 goals in 86 appearances for the Hammers since joining the club from Portsmouth in the summer of 2004.
