Mark Schwarzer: In talks over a new cont

Fulham goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer has revealed he has entered into contract negotiations to extend his stay at Craven Cottage.

The 40-year-old joined Fulham in 2008 from Middlesbrough and has been a key member of the Cottagers' squad since then.

Schwarzer, who has 104 caps for Australia, is out of contract in the summer, but is hopeful of staying with the Whites.

"I feel really good and don't think the age thing is hindering my performances in any way," he told the Fulham Chronicle.

"I've had some initial discussions and the intentions are there at the club to keep me."

Schwarzer has one eye on the World Cup in Brazil next summer and wants to be first choice, whether that be at Fulham or elsewhere.

"I want to be playing each week - that's the key for me. I love playing and don't want to be number two anywhere," he added.

"The World Cup is also a huge priority and the reality is if I am not playing I don't think it would be possible to be a part of the national team. I just want to be out there enjoying every minute - especially at this stage of my career.

"If that means I have to move on at the end of the season, then that's fine also. Let's just see how we go."
