The 34-year-old´s agent, Shep Messing, has warned the Teessiders the player will look to further his career elsewhere if they do not come up with a better deal. Schwarzer warned on Thursday he would have no qualms about walking away from the Riverside Stadium after criticising the club over compatriot Mark Viduka´s departure.
Messing said: "Middlesbrough asked what Mark wanted and we confirmed his wish to remain at the club. We put forward a sensible and fair proposition for both player and club. We have received a proposal from the club and at this point, we have been unable to agree on terms."
