LONDON — For­mer Eng­land goal­keeper David James, who de­clared him­self bank­rupt ear­lier this year, is to auc­tion hun­dreds of foot­ball items he amassed across his 25year ca­reer.

James played for Premier League teams Liver­pool, As­ton Villa, West Ham, Manch­ester City and Portsmouth and was capped 53 times for Eng­land.

The 44-year-old is sell­ing 200 foot­ball-re­lated sou­venirs and 24 other per­sonal items through auc­tion­eers Hilco, based in Kent, from 6-18 Novem­ber.

Among the col­lec­tion are more than 100 shirts — many signed — as well as shorts and foot­balls.

A fur­ther 24 per­sonal items un­re­lated to his ca­reer in­clude his As­tra van and Raleigh bikes, ex­er­cise equip­ment and a lux­ury Co­rum watch.
