Celtic boss Neil Lennon has confirmed he wants to bring England No1 David James to Parkhead, reports the Scottish Sun.

The Parkhead boss has held talks with the 39-year-old keeper and is considering a swoop following the departure of Artur Boruc.

James is a free agent after leaving crisis-torn Portsmouth.

Lennon said: "We have made contact and we're hoping he'll come up and have a look at the place when we get back from America. That's as far as it's gone at the minute.

"That kind of experience appeals to me hugely.

"He's England's No1 and it would be daft not to look at it.

"Just the fact he's interested is very encouraging - not just for the league and Europe but as someone who can fill Artur's shoes.

"They made the initial contact, that is very encouraging.

"He's a player I respect and I think he'd be a good player for Celtic."

James has already sounded out former Pompey team-mate Richard Hughes about a move north.

His agent Colin Gordon said: "I contacted Celtic after what happened with Artur Boruc and we are just waiting to see if it's something we can progress."
