Bryan Ruiz: Linked with move

The former Gent and Twente man has been linked with a return to Belgium with Anderlecht whilst Dutch giants PSV Eindhoven were also said to be interested.

And Costa Rica international Ruiz admits a move back across the Channel could appeal to him, as he appears to have slipped down the pecking order at Fulham.

Quoted in Belgian daily La Derniere Heure he said: "If I ever get the chance to play in Belgium or Holland, I would think about it.

"I've good memories of the Belgian league. I still have a lot of friends there."

He added: "I'm looking forward to the World Cup. We've a difficult season here at Fulham, but I want to be as fit as possible for the World Cup."

Anderlecht are reportedly hoping to persuade Fulham to sanction a loan deal, but PSV's interest appears to have faded.

PSV's director of football Marcel Brands said: "We were interested in Ruiz in the summer, but he wanted to stay in London.

"Now, he isn't an option for us anymore."

Fulham are being linked with a loan move for their former star Clint Dempsey, who could be set to return to England on a short-term loan from MLS outfit Seattle Sounders.

All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
