Anderlecht have confirmed their interest in Fulham forward Bryan Ruiz, but admit he is not their first choice. "He is on our list. Ruiz is a good player, but not our first choice," Anderlecht general manager Herman van Holsbeeck told Het Laatste Nieuws.

"I have a plan A, a plan B and a plan C and I'm happy my plan A hasn't been leaked yet.

"Of course we know Ruiz's qualities. We have made a list of players who will go to the World Cup, but aren't playing regularly. Ruiz is on it, but so are others."
