Bryan Ruiz - Tottenham transfer target

Harry Redknapp has played down rumours that Tottenham are set to sign Bryan Ruiz.

The Spurs boss travelled to Holland on Tuesday night to watch the FC Twente forward score during Twente’s 2-2 draw at home to Benfica.

“I went and watched the game and watched him play,” said Redknapp, who was speaking ahead of Thursday’s Europa League play-off first leg against Hearts at Tynecastle.

“He is a good player but we are more desperate in other areas.

“I don’t think anything is going to happen. He’s a good player that I have watched before.

“I just like going to watch football matches so I thought I’d just go and see the game.”
