Sheringham Nearly Joined Villa
Veteran striker Teddy Sheringham has revealed he nearly quit West Ham to join Aston Villa earlier this season as he was getting frustrated at the lack of first team action for the Hammers.
The 40-year-old former Manchester United, Millwall and Tottenham man explained:
'When I am not involved in the 16 I sometimes wonder if I should move on. Aston Villa came in for me earlier in the season and I thought 'that would do for me'. I sometimes wonder why I am putting myself through all of this and then get disappointed in not being involved.'
If memory serves me right, the former England striker was also linked to a return to White Hart Lane but opted to stay at Upton Park.
