Portsmouth chief Storrie: No offers for James

Portsmouth chief executive Peter Storrie has revealed that there were no offers for goalkeeper David James prior to the transfer deadline.

The 39-year old England international was heavily linked with a move away from Fratton Park but Storrie confirmed that no club came in with any sort of offer for his services.

"He's still here. Obviously there was a lot of talk about David but we didn't have any direct offers for him," Storrie told Sky Sports News.

"I think a lot of it was done from David and from his agents. There was, I think, some interest from Tottenham, but nothing that moved into any bids."

It was believed that Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp was keen to sign James but he admitted that he never planned to bid for him.

"There was nothing there. I have said many times that I think David is a fantastic goalkeeper, but I have got two terrific goalkeepers (Heurelho Gomes and Carlo Cudicini) here so it was never going to be a possibility," he said.
