David James has insisted he is committed to Portsmouth despite reports suggesting he could link up with Harry Redknapp at Tottenham Hotspur.
A number of Pompey players have been linked with January switches to White Hart Lane since Redknapp departed the club last month.
Redknapp is specifically reported to be keen on bolstering his squad with a shot-stopper, leading to rumours that James could be targeted in the forthcoming transfer window.
However, England international James, 38, is confident he and the majority of Tony Adams' current squad will be remaining on the South Coast.
"Although Harry has left, nothing has changed as far as I'm concerned regarding my future at the club," he told The News.
"I'm very confident for the future with the players we've got here. If we'd lost half of the players when Harry left then things might be slightly different.
"But we haven't lost any players and I'm confident we'll continue to do well."
He added: "I'd imagine that if any players left, it would be down to financial reasons and nothing else.
"You could argue that, if some do leave, it would have happened with Harry had he been here anyway.
"Of course, I'm hoping everything will stay exactly as it is.
"We've got some excellent players and I don't know of any who want to leave just because Harry has gone."
