Newcastle United are hoping to hijack Fulham’s move for FC Twente attacker Bryan Ruiz.

The Magpies have matched Fulham’s £10million offer for the Costa Rican international but a move to England is still very much up in the air according to the player’s agent Walter Mortelmans.

“Nothing is settled yet. We will make a decision later on tonight,” he told the Shields Gazette.

It is believed that Ruiz was keen to move to one of the ‘bigger’ clubs in England and was unsure of making his way to Craven Cottage indicating that a shift to St James’ Park could still be an option.
