Mark Schwarzer has handed Middlesbrough a huge boost by agreeing to a new three-year contract. The Australian international is Boro's longest serving
player, but his future had been in major doubt after talks stalled over a new contract.
The 32-year-old had been strongly linked with Manchester United and Liverpool, and a Bosman transfer look likely in the summer. However, renewed talks
between the two parties have seen a compromise reached and Boro have now secured Schwarzer until 2008.
