Veteran English goalkeeper David James is on the verge of joining Icelandic club IBV.

The 42-year old recently finished up with Bournemouth but will now move to Iceland to become a playing coach under former Portsmouth teammate Herman Hreidarsson.

The former Liverpool, Aston Villa, Manchester City and West Ham United gloveman is hoping to kickstart his IBV career with a charity match against cash-strapped Pompey.

"I am going to sign for #ibv in Iceland today," he wrote on Twitter.

"My role is as player/coach, alongside Herman. We are both very excited about the journey ahead.

"I am also looking forward to playing for #ibv in the match at Fratton Park,16th April. Lets hope the club is sorted, sharpish! #pup."
