Fulham boss Mark Hughes hopes Mark Schwarzer's future lies at the club. The 37-year old Australian veteran asked to be transferred to Arsenal during the summer transfer window but a mooted shift never eventuated and he remained at Craven Cottage.
There have been murmurings ever since that Schwarzer was set to quit the club in the next transfer window in January but Cottagers manager Hughes is full of hope that the ex-Middlesbrough gloveman will commit himself to the Fulham cause.
"He's settled down and we're talking to him in terms of his future. He's got options. He's in the last year of his contract so we'd like to think his future lies here," Hughes said.
