Bryan Ruiz has swiftly rebuffed reports that he only joined Fulham for the money.

The 26-year-old moved from FC Twente on transfer deadline day for a reported fee of £10.6million despite interest from several other Premier League clubs. However, Ruiz reportedly told Dutch magazine Voetbal International he would rather have signed for London rivals Tottenham and only moved to Craven Cottage for the money.

He has moved to deny the comments, saying: "Following media reports concerning interviews I gave in Holland last week about my move to Fulham Football Club, I wish to make it known to the club's supporters that as soon as Fulham's interest was apparent to me in the summer, and despite very public interest from other clubs, I was only ever intent on joining FFC."
