Australian goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer wants to use the one year contract extension clause on his agreement with Fulham and stay until 2013.
“As long as I am playing well week in, week out and the manager is playing me then I’ll be around for a while to come,” Schwarzer said.
“I have signed a contract that keeps me at Fulham until the end of next season, and potentially there could be another year after that, too.”
Schwarzer was brought to Fulham from Middlesbrough in 2008. In his first season with the south London club, he helped them finish seventh, as opposed to their highest position of 17th the year before.
The Fulham keeper recently told Australian news outlet Fox Sports he was planning on playing for at least another four years, and would like to participate in the next World Cup.
"In the back of my mind I'm looking at the 2014 World Cup - I'll be 41," Schwarzer said.
"Players like [Manchester United keeper] Edwin van der Sar have shown that at 40 you can still play at the top level. I've got no immediate plans to retire at all."
