Former Hammers striker Teddy Sheringham has joined Championship outfit Colchester United.
The 41-year-old veteran has signed a one-year deal with the U's following his release from West Ham United at the end of last season.
Colchester boss Geriant Williams confirmed the news of Sheringham's arrival when he told the club's website:
"Teddy is a top player and we are delighted that he's coming. He will be a key part of the squad.
"Teddy is renowned for his touch and his movement and I think the other players will benefit from playing up close with him, both in games and in training."
Sheringham spent three years with the Hammers during which he made 87 first team appearances and scored 30 goals.
