Fulham manager Martin Jol has insisted that Mark Schwarzer remains in his plans for next season according to The Fulham Chronicle.

The 40 year old goalkeeper has played in almost all of Fulham’s games this season but the player’s contract is due to expire at the end of the current campaign.

Jol insists the ball is in Schwarzer’s court over his future with the Dutch boss hoping the Aussie stopper decides to extend his stay with the London club.

Fulham have offered Schwarzer a contract extension but the player is yet to put pen to paper on a new deal.

Reports in recent weeks have linked the Cottagers with a number of new goalkeepers.

The latest suggestion is that the club could make a summer bid for ex-Liverpool goalkeeper Nikolay Mihaylov.

The Bulgarian keeper is currently plying his trade in the Dutch leagues with Eredivisie side FC Twente but is reportedly willing to consider offers from Premier League clubs.

Jol admitted the club were in the market for a new goalkeeper but hinted it was as a back-up for Schwarzer rather than as his replacement.

Fulham have also been linked with a potential loan deal for Chelsea’s young Belgian goalkeeper Thibault Courtois.
