Graham Westley is currently in charge of Stevenage, but he is out of contract at the end of the month and no new deal is in place.
Westley told BBC Three Counties Radio last week that he could leave the Boro, admitting: “The chairman and I spoke a couple of weeks ago and it's conceivable I won't get to work with these lads any longer.”
Stevenage finished sixth in League Two this season and earned a playoff spot, but they failed to get the better of Southend United in the semi-finals.
It is interesting that Boro want to bring in someone who has not worked as a manager before and take a huge risk.
Perhaps Stevenage chairman Phil Wallace has been impressed with the work that the 49-year-old has been doing as a coach at West Ham over the past year.
Sheringham, who also played for Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United, is a big name in English football, and his arrival at Broadhall Way will certainly increase the profile of Stevenage.
