Fulham have finalized the signing of Costa Rican striker Bryan Ruiz from FC Twente for a fee rumoured to be in the region of £10.5million. They successfully completed the signing shortly before the transfer deadline despite a rival offer from Newcastle.
If the Fulham deal comes through, Ruiz will join Marseille striker Andre-Pierre Gignac, who has joined on loan, at the Craven Cottage club and may be seen as a replacement for Clint Dempsey, who is rumoured to be interesting Paris St. Germain and has also been linked to Arsenal in recent days.
Ruiz is by no means a household name, and Fulham fans may be curious as to just who it is that manager Martin Jol has chosen to splash such a large amount of money on.
With that in mind, I thought I'd put together a short slideshow to introduce the player and give you five facts about him.
I hope you enjoy.
