West Ham have confirmed the capture of former Spurs and Man Utd striker Teddy Sheringham.

The deal, confirmed this afternoon, sees Sheringham move to Upton Park on a free transfer.

Speaking on whufc.com this afternoon, 38-year-old Sheringham said:

"Iım delighted to be here. I spoke with Alan Pardew last season when he was manager at Reading and was very impressed with him, so when the chance came to join him at West Ham United I jumped at it.

"I was a Hammers fan as a youngster and stood on the old North bank with my big brother watching the likes of Alan Devonshire, Ray Stewart, Billy Jennings and Graham Paddon.

"So, to get the opportunity of playing for this great club after all these years is an honour and I'm sure I will enjoy the season helping the team to achieve their promotion goal."

News of Sheringham's arrival has met with a muted response from many Hammers fans.
