Following our fine 3-0 win against Swansea, at the Liberty Stadium, Martin Jol gave an insight into the Mark Schwarzer situation.

Schwarzer, who has yet to put pen-to-paper on a new deal and is rumoured to be thinking about a possible return to Australia, will be invited for further contract talks with Jol commenting,

“We offered Mark a new contract, but the only thing is he wanted to be guaranteed to be #1 – and that is not easy as we need a goalkeeper anyway.”

“We don`t know what will happen to Stockdale and David does not want to be the #2. He wants to be #1 as well and that is the problem.”

“We will sit down with Mark and try to find a solution. Hopefully we will find a resolution. We won 3-0 and he was very good. It would have been different if he had not been there.”

“But you have to compete and fight for a place. He wants almost a guarantee to be #1 but if we cannot find a solution we need to get a very good goalkeeper because you need to be very good to be better than, to be the same, as him.”

It looks as if it could get rather complicated does it not?
