David James "flattered" by Tottenham transfer talk

David James has welcomed suggestions that he could be a transfer target for Tottenham Hotspur when the January transfer window opens.

James has been linked with a possible move to White Hart Lane to reunite with his former manager at Portsmouth, Harry Redknapp, even though Heurelho Gomes has impressed for the London club of late.

Recent weeks have been frustrating for James as he has struggled with fitness problems and seen Portsmouth remain at the bottom of the Premier League table.

And with his status as England's number one under threat, James would clearly relish the chance to join Tottenham as they push for a European place.

"You could say that I'm flattered by a team of Tottenham's stature and that it would be good for my England chances to join an upwardly-mobile club," he told Sunday Telegraph. "It doesn't surprise me that Harry has been such a success at Tottenham."

James joined Portsmouth in the summer of 2006 and won the FA Cup two years later, but this season has been a real struggle for the club with financial problems having a big impact off the pitch.

A long list of star names have left in the past 12 months - including Lassana Diarra, Glen Johnson and Jermain Defoe - and James admits that seeing the squad disband has been disheartening.

"You have to focus on where you are, and I want to help Portsmouth to climb the table," James said. "The departure of so many players from the club last summer was a great pity, especially when those players are your proven goalscorers. When half of the team disperse, you feel a bit cheated."
