Keeper ‘flattered’ by Spurs talk

Portsmouth goalkeeper David James admits he is ‘flattered’ to be linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur.

James is said to have become frustrated with life at Fratton Park and believes a switch to White Hart Lane could boost his chances of a place in England’s World Cup squad.

“You could say that I’m flattered by a team of Tottenham’s stature and that it would be good for my England chances to join an upwardly-mobile club,” James told the Sunday Telegraph.

He added: “You have to focus on where you are, and I want to help Portsmouth to climb the table.

“The departure of so many players from the club last summer was a great pity, especially when those players are your proven goalscorers.

“When half of the team disperse, you feel a bit cheated.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. we’ve said it before, no thanks
    He’s too old so would only be good for one season, and at the moment gomes is in form so this wouldn’t help your england chances at all
    I’m not saying James isn’t a good keeper but he’d only get on the bench atm
    Hopefully we can buy a young keeper to replace cudicini
