James signs new deal.

Only a day after being linked with Shrewsbury's promising keeper Joe Hart, City have announced that David James has signed a one-year contract extension with the club, meaning his deal will now expire summer 2007.
Stuart Pearce sums it up pretty well by explaining "His form over the last two years has prompted me to sit down and say, ’Where do I get a better goalkeeper than David James?"’.
I can't imagine a City fan who would disagree with those comments and the job he has done since he replaced the mistake signing of David Seaman has been immense. As well as Dunne and Distin have improved the last eighteen months our defensive play over that time has as much to do with the influence and form of James and it wouldn't suprise me to see him extend the deal a year or two further either.
