Experienced Aussie wants to carry on playing in the top flight next season though.
Veteran Fulham keeper Mark Schwarzer has announced that he will be leaving the club this summer after the Cottagers bought Maarten Stekelenburg from AS Roma, reports the Daily Mail.
The experienced Australia international has been at Craven Cottage for the past five seasons now, having arrived in west London from Middlesbrough on a free transfer in June 2008.
And, in the intervening five-year period the 40-year-old has proved himself to still be one of the very best shot stoppers in the Premier League, having featured in 216 matches for Fulham in that time, 170 of which came in the top flight.
However, Fulham head coach Martin Jol decided against offering Schwarzer a new deal this summer to remain in the capital next season and so the player is now free to find another employer, with the Aussie available on a free transfer.
“I’ve been hearing that for a while, so it’s no great surprise and I’ll be looking for another club,” said Schwarzer, who is currently on international duty with Australia.
“Nothing has been sorted at the moment, the Japan game was the most important thing on the agenda so I’m worried about the Australia games now.”
