Former England keeper David James has been released by Championship Bristol City. The 41-year-old, who won 53 caps, was among eight players not offered new contracts by the Ashton Gate club, reports BBC News.

James joined City in 2010, having previously played Watford, Liverpool, Aston Villa, West Ham, Manchester City and Portsmouth.

James, who was England's first-choice keeper at the last World Cup in South Africa, saved two penalties in a single game against Reading in February.
