Bankrupt goalkeeper auctions items

More than 150 football shirts, shorts and footballs owned by former England goalkeeper David James are being sold at auction after the star went bankrupt.

The online sale of the collection of memorabilia is expected to help him in his financial difficulties.

It emerged earlier this year that the 44-year-old, whose clubs included Liverpool, Aston Villa, West Ham and Manchester City, had been declared bankrupt despite earning around £20 million from football.

It was said that his costly divorce from wife Tanya in 2005 was one of the main reasons for his money woes.

The lots available at will be sold off from November 18.
