England keeper joins City

Championship side Bristol City have completed the signing of England goalkeeper David James on a one-year deal.

Celtic and Sunderland were also reportedly interested in signing the 39-year-old, but failed to reach an agreement with the former Portsmouth keeper.

James said: “I’ve had offers to stay in the Premier League but it is more important that I play football – which I love – for the right club and be a family man.

“I had a long conversation with the chairman Steve Lansdown yesterday and I liked what he said about the club and his ambition. I know all about the plans for a new stadium and desire to win promotion to the Premier League.

“The club is ambitious and that’s what I am. The South West has not had a club in the Premier League and that needs to change.”
