Portsmouth chief Storrie fires warning at unsettled James

Portsmouth chief Peter Storrie has fired a warning at England goalkeeper David James that his place is no longer guaranteed.

Storrie told The News: "David has got to knuckle down and work hard. He may be the England goalkeeper but we have got a lot of talented goalkeepers here. David has got competition, believe me.

"Asmir (Begovic) has grown in stature every time he has played and Antti Niemi is not far from fitness. We've also got Jamie Ashdown.

"David has said things and most of those conversations have been with Paul (Hart). Let's just say they have had discussions. As far as we are concerned, he is under contract and here to give 100 per cent to Portsmouth Football Club.

"If he does not want that he has to tell us that.

"We didn't actually get any offers for him. There was interest from Spurs as I understand it but we had no direct offer.

"They wanted to trade Carlo Cudicini but that wasn't anything which interested us. Now David's here to stay and it's up to him to get on with things."
