Psycho confirms Pompey in for James

Manchester City boss Stuart Pearce has confirmed the club have received an approach from Portsmouth for England goalkeeper David James.

James, who is believed to be the subject of a £2million bid from Harry Redknapp's team, did not feature in either of City's pre-season games in Shanghai this week despite travelling to China with the rest of the squad.

Nicky Weaver was preferred between the posts for the 1-0 win over Shanghai Shenhau on Friday evening while the inexperienced Joe Hart was in goal as City lost 4-3 to Japan's Kashima Antlers today.

Pearce, though, stressed the speculation over James' future had no bearing over his squad selection.

'I think they've been in contact with the club but I pick the team and my team selection said that Joe plays tonight and I think he's benefited greatly,' said Pearce.

'Dave's here and we felt as though Joe needed the experience and he would benefit more from this than David may have.'

While the former Watford, Liverpool and Aston Villa goalkeeper could be on his way to Fratton Park, City are stepping up their interest in Ajax's Tunisian international full-back Hatem Trabelsi.

'He's available,' said Pearce. 'I think he's a good player and we're speaking to him and his representatives. That's where we are at the moment.

'He's not signed yet for the club so we are hoping that might progress in the next couple of days.'
