Bhoys hoping to land James

21 Jul 2010 - 09:26:49

Celtic manager Neil Lennon has revealed that talks have begun in an effort to lure goalkeeper David James to Parkhead.

Lennon is hoping to sign the veteran England international from Portsmouth following the departure of former number one Artur Boruc to Fiorentina.

The 39-year-old shot-stopper is out of contract at Fratton Park and available on a free transfer following the south coast club's relegation from the Premier League last season.

The former Liverpool, Aston Villa, Manchester City and West Ham keeper has been offered a player-coach role by Pompey but has yet to put pen to paper.

"We are still a long way off and it's early days in terms of negotiation," Lennon is quoted as saying.

"But just the fact he is interested is very encouraging from our point of view.

"I want to get the best goalkeeper I possibly can.

"Not only for the league and Europe but also someone who can fill Artur's shoes - and he's one who can."
