James linked with Prem new boys

James linked with Prem new boys

Reading boss and former City manager ( for a few days anyway), Steve Coppell is reportedly keen to sign David James in a £2m deal, according to the BBC.

Jamo is currently on World Cup duty as cover for Paul Robinson, and has been a good servant for City since he joined from West Ham, despite all the flak he's copped in the press.

If true, a fee of around £2m might just be enough to tempt Psycho into parting with one of City's mainstays over the last few seasons, although James' departure would leave a short-term problem with just Nicky Weaver and two inexperienced 'keepers, Kaspar Schmeichel and Joe Hart.

City No 2, Weaver has recovered from a string of bad injuries and would relish the prospect of being City No 1 again, but despite him being a City favourite, there are still doubts about whether he could re-capture the outstanding form of his earlier career, that saw him on the fringes of international honours.

Should City cash in on James or is he still too valuable to let go?

At this stage of his career a £2m transfer would make good sense especially as Nicky Weaver is fully fit and proved himself in the reserves towards the end of the season. Having signed Joe Hart the current England U19 keeper he would make the ideal understudy.

If weaver is back to somehwere near his best and you have back up for him, then i'd say that £2 million is a very good price for D.J.
