James completes Pompey switch

Portsmouth have complete signing of goalkeeper David James from Manchester City for £1.2million.

Pompey boss Harry Redknapp, who secured another England international Sol Campbell on a two-year deal on Tuesday, moved for the 36-year-old after his reserve goalkeeper Jamie Ashdown was ruled out for six weeks with a broken thumb.

But if James, who has been offered a three-year contract, completes his move to Fratton Park he will be installed as the side's first choice in place of Dean Kiely, who moved to Pompey from Charlton for £500,000 in January and starred in their great escape from relegation.

Portsmouth's director of communications Helen Wood said: 'We can confirm that Manchester City have accepted our offer and that David James will be coming to the club for a medical and to discuss personal terms.'

Redknapp will now turn his attention to signing a striker after last night's 2-1 home defeat by FC Porto emphasised his problems up front.

Svetoslav Todorov was employed as a lone striker in the pre-season friendly and scored Pompey's goal with a diving header.

But with record £4.4million signing Benjani Mwaruwari sitting in the stand with a thigh injury and Lomana LuaLua ruled out of the first two weeks of the season with an ankle trouble, the south coast club are in need of reinforcements.

Former Arsenal striker Kanu looks favourite to fill the breach on a free transfer after being released by West Brom at the end of last season. Redknapp was believed to be in conversation with the Nigerian's agent last night.

Redknapp has also been linked with prolific Southend striker Freddy Eastwood, who he signed for West Ham as a schoolboy and left the club before the player was also released.

He told the Portsmouth News: 'We are looking for strikers but I would be lying if I said I was following him. He has gone through the leagues scoring goals, though, and if he keeps doing that people will keep looking at him.'
