Bristol City have announced the signing of England goalkeeper David James after he successfully passed a medical at Ashton Gate today.
The 39-year-old has signed a one-year deal with the option of extending his stay by another twelve months at the end of the season.
Speaking to the club website, James said: "I've had offers to stay in the Premier League but it is more important that I play football - which I love - for the right club and be a family man.
"I had a long conversation with the chairman Steve Lansdown yesterday and I liked what he said about the club and his ambition. I know all about the plans for a new stadium and desire to win promotion to the Premier League.
"The club is ambitious and that's what I am. The south west has not had a club in the Premier League and that needs to change."
Lansdown himself could not contain his delight at managing to attract such a big name to the club.
"I`m delighted David James has agreed to sign today," Lansdown said.
"My ambition is for this football club to play at the highest level - the Premier League - and in the best surroundings, hence the work on the training ground and new stadium.
"We need good quality players to make that happen and that`s why I`m thrilled that David has agreed to come on board."
James played three of England's four games at the recent World Cup in South Africa but left Portsmouth last month following their relegation from the Premier League.
