Fulham goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer has begun talks over extending his contract with the London club.
Schwarzer, 40, joined the Cottagers from Middlesbrough in 2008 and has established himself as one of their key players.
The Australia international's Craven Cottage contract expires in the summer, but he said preliminary talks over renewing his deal had already started.
He told the Fulham Chronicle: "I feel really good, and I don't think the age thing is hindering my performances in any way.
"I've had some initial discussions and the intentions are there at the club to keep me.
"I want to be playing each week - that's the key for me. I love playing, and don't want to be No. 2 anywhere.
"The 2014 World Cup is also a huge priority and the reality is that, if I am not playing, I don't think it would be possible to be a part of the national team."
The goalkeeper said he would "not have a problem" with moving in the summer if he believed his first-team opportunities at Fulham were likely to become more limited.
