James unlikely to leave Portsmouth during January

David James is in a state of limbo over his own future with his World Cup chances possibly hinging on whether he remains with Portsmouth.

• On The Move: Live transfer blog

James' England chances would be enhanced by a move to club higher up the Premier League table in the January transfer window, but he might be stuck at Fratton Park as Tottenham have cooled their interest.

A Portsmouth insider told ESPN Soccernet: "We might have to move a couple of players on because of the financial situation, and there have been enquires for David Nugent, while Burnley want to only extend the loan period.

"However, we have not received any approaches for David James. There was some talk that Harry Redknapp fancied taking him to Spurs, but we also heard that the club wasn't too keen because of the player's wages, but we don't really know for sure. All we know is that there has been no approach."

As Pompey are late paying their £1.8 million monthly wage bill for the third time in a row, the focus is on James, who is one of the club's highest wage earners.

A leading agent told ESPN Soccernet: "The problem with David James, is that Portsmouth will have trouble giving him away because of the wages he's on."

The 39-year-old 'keeper is believed to be in the final year of a contract worth around £2 million per annum. James is therefore a free agent in the summer, and the only purpose of Pompey letting him go now would be to reduce their wage bill. There is little to no chance of any fee being attached to alleviate their £75 million debt.

Redknapp has been linked with James for some time, but Heurelho Gomes has struck a rich vein of form and is now the number one 'keeper, despite a shaky start.

The source close to James told ESPN Soccernet: "Harry Redknapp admires David, but Gomes has established himself and it won't do David any good to go to any club where he is number two.

"David's priority is to get himself fit, and he only has a slight calf strain and he should be back this weekend so he can take it from there."

Fabio Capello wants to select fully fit players for South Africa and is therefore monitoring James' situation closely. The England manager also wants his players to be match fit for the tournament which means regular football in the second half of the season.
