Portsmouth goalkeeper has welcomed the re-appointment of Avram Grant at Fratton Park.
The former Chelsea manager has returned to be Pompey's director of football, having previously occupied the position between 2006 and 2007.
"I love Avram, he's a great guy," said James at a press conference ahead of England's World Cup qualifier in Ukraine on Saturday.
"When I first joined the club he was there and he was very active in preparation for matches. He's a very wise man; his football knowledge is immense.
"It's a very good move."
