Celtic manager Neil Lennon has confirmed that they are considering making a move for England international goalkeeper David James.
James is available on a free transfer as his contract with Portsmouth expired earlier this summer.
Celtic are looking to bring in a new goalkeeper following the sale of Artur Boruc to Italian side Fiorentina earlier this week.
“David James is one of a few goalkeepers we’re looking at,” Lennon told the Daily Record. “He is only one of three or four we have in mind.
“We are open to the concept and we are hoping he will come up to have a look at the place when we get back and we’ll see if he fancies it. His experience appeals to me and, not only that, he is England’s No.1.
“It’s early in terms of negotiations and things like that. But the fact he’s interested is very encouraging from our point of view.
“I want to get the best goalkeeper I can possibly get, not only for the league and for Europe but also someone who can fill Artur’s shoes as well and he is one who can.
“Hopefully he will come up and I’ll have time to fill him in and have a chat with him. He’s a player I admire and respect and I think he would be fantastic for us.
“To have someone of that stature and calibre would be brilliant but it’s pretty early days to start commenting on that.”
