He went on a five-month loan to Swedish club Hammarby IF in November 2008 after a couple of games with the club, where there is a clause in the loan that gives Hammarby the option to buy him when the loan ends. On 7 June 2009 Hammarby IF reported that they would buy James and he would be given a four-year contract.
As of June 2010, James has been out of play for almost a year, due to a misunderstanding with the club doctors claiming he has a heart condition while he was 100 percent healthy, he did not sustain any injury that prevented him from playing.
29 June 2011, James extended his contract with Hammarby IF for another two years, playing 17 games in 2011, 6 games in 2012 and played 15 games in 2013.
