James agrees to join IBV
Former England goalkeeper David James is to join Icelandic club IBV, he has announced.
James, 42, had been with League One side Bournemouth until last month, but his contract was cancelled by mutual consent after losing his place in the side.
He will now take up a player-coach role with IBV, managed by his former Portsmouth team-mate Hermann Hreidarsson.
James wrote on Twitter: “I am going to sign for #ibv in Iceland today. My role is as player/coach, alongside Herman. We are both very excited about the journey ahead.”
James will play a charity match with IBV against Portsmouth in a fortnight to help raise funds for the financially troubled League One side.
He added: “I am also looking forward to playing for #ibv in the match at Fratton Park, 16th April. Lets hope the club is sorted, sharpish! #pup.”
