The ex-Manchester United, Spurs and Millwall striker finished his career at Colchester last summer and is said to be wanted for Town's 2009-10 Carlsberg FA Vase campaign.

''I'm having talks with Teddy about the situation,'' said Becks Chairman Chris McCarthy on the club website. ''But these things do take a lot of sorting out.

''I'm really hopeful that between us we can make the situation become a reality,'' he continued.
''It's an enormously exciting prospect.''

Notching up over 280 goals and 750 appearances in his career, Sheringham recently turned out for a Celebrity XI against Beckenham Town. His fitness and goalscoring prowess belied his age as the 43-year-old striker bagged a hat-trick in a 5-4 win for the celebs.

Town will play their first round FA Vase tie at home against Wealden on 5 September. The winner will be at home against Banstead Athletic for the second round commencing 19 September.;
