Middlesbrough goalkeeper Ross Turnbull wants his new contract sorting out as soon as possible.

"I just want it sorting as soon as possible. I want to stay."

Quotes of the week

The 23-year-old has become Boro's number one this season, following Mark Schwarzer's summer move to Fulham.

But Turnbull is out-of-contract at the end of the season and admits he is keen to get his future resolved.

"We have had talks. There has been nothing recently but I'm looking to get that sorted as soon as possible," said Turnbull.

"We are not too far away from agreeing my deal, although I would not say we are close yet either.

"I just want it sorting as soon as possible. I want to stay.

"I have said that all the way along and I just hope it will get sorted sooner rather than later."

McMahon delight

Meanwhile, Turnbull's fellow academy graduate Tony McMahon has revealed his delight at making his first-team comeback.

McMahon produced an excellent display against Arsenal at the weekend, which was his start for Boro more than two-years.

"I loved every minute of it and I didn't want the game to end," he said.

"I've worked really hard to get this chance again. No-one was there when I was on my own and it was a long road back.

"Obviously it was only my first game but I took my chance with both hands and thought I did really well.

"I was flying into everything, my timing was good and I felt fit, I was just buzzing.

"I'm feeling fit and strong and hopefully I'm over all my injuries and I can kick on now.

"I was always determined to come back and play at Middlesbrough because I love it here and this is the atmosphere I want to play in every week.

"I love the fans and I think the fans like me, so it was great to be back out there again.

"It was a long road back but I'm here and I'm here to stay now."
