David James has joined championship outfit Bristol City and sees no reason why he cannot continue his England international career. The keeper, who turns 40 on Sunday, has signed a one-year deal at Ashton Gate, with the option of a second year.

Whether England coach Fabio Capello will now consider picking James, given he will be playing second-tier football, is an issue the Italian will need to address.

"I don't know what the future holds, and it was the same before the World Cup to be honest," James told City's official website.

"I enjoyed the World Cup to an extent but obviously the results and the outcome were disappointing.

"I'll never retire from England and hopefully my performances at Bristol City will keep me on the radar."
