The former England goalkeeper David James, without a club since leaving Bristol City at the end of last season, is training with Bournemouth.

James, 42, who worked with Bournemouth's football adviser Harry Redknapp at nearby South Coast club Portsmouth, has also worked with the club's manager, Paul Groves.

Groves is looking to address the defensive problems that have seen Bournemouth leak more goals than any other League One club except Bury, and could bring the keeper in on a contract basis.

James won 53 international caps and his club career saw him play for Watford, Liverpool, Aston Villa, West Ham, Manchester City and Portsmouth.

Earlier in the season, James had trained with Exeter City, but this was a move intended to keep him fit rather than leading to a longer-term transfer.
