Colchester United`s resident Internet-based fans have been mulling over the rumour that West Ham`s Ted Sheringham, out of contact, would consider a move to Colchester United.

The former England international, 41, has a house in Witham and is has mentored fellow Hammer, and U`s loanee, Hogan Ephraim, who this season declared the ex-Manchester United star as his hero.

Signing Sheringham, whose only remaining career ambition is to play with, or against, his son Charlie, would be a great coup for the U`s. Charlie currently plays for Crystal Palace in the Championship.
