Cottagers No 1 wants one more top-flight campaign.
Veteran Fulham keeper Mark Schwarzer may be forced to leave the west London club after denying claims that he has been offered a new deal to remain at Craven Cottage next season, says the Daily Mirror.
The experienced Australia international, 40, has been at Fulham since signing on a free transfer from Middlesbrough in 2008, however, the goalkeeper’s current contract with the Cottagers is set to expire at the end of next month.
And, with Schwarzer desperate to carry on playing at the very highest level for one more campaign so that he can fulfill his dream of playing for the Socceroos at the 2014 World Cup finals in Brazil, the Aussie may be forced to quit the top-flight outfit this summer in search of new employers.
Schwarzer has made 170 Premier League appearances for Fulham, and 216 in all competitions, in is five-year stay in the capital.
“That may be my last game for Fulham. Obviously I’m out of contract and as of yet I have had no official offer of a new deal contrary to reports,” said Schwarzer after Sunday’s match with Swansea City.
“I still want to play in the Premier League and still believe I have the ability to do it. But the bottom line is I have to find a club that believe in my ability.
“I still have the hunger and desire to play at the highest level and I my plan is to definitely play another year – I want to go to another World Cup.
“But to do that I need to be playing regularly and if that means I need to go elsewhere then I will go elsewhere.”
