Ruiz keen on English move

11 August 2011 12:20
Reported Premier League target Bryan Ruiz says he would be open to leaving FC Twente for an English club this summer.

The forward claimed earlier this week that Tottenham are chasing his signature, while their North London rivals Arsenal are also thought to be pursuing the Costa Rica international.

Ruiz says he would only leave the Eredivisie for a bigger league and has named the English top-flight as his preferred destination.

He said: "I have three weeks left to transfer and I hope I can change to one of the best leagues, such as the English, otherwise I will stay in Twente.

"There is a team that is showing interest, but it will be my agent that keeps me informed about the negotiations."

The 25-year-old, who joined Twente from Belgian club Gent two years ago, is believed to have a £13.75million release clause in his contract.

The Dutch side confirmed on Monday that no official approach had yet been made by Tottenham.
