Tottenham are determined to push through a deal for FC Twente star Bryan Ruiz.

Ruiz is waiting for Spurs to make concrete move for him, but the Londoners need to sell before making a firm offer.

Twente expect Tottenham to come in for Ruiz once they sell Peter Crouch and Wilson Palacios to Stoke City for an expected £17 million.

The money raised and salaries saved will allow Spurs boss Harry Redknapp to sign the Costa Rica attacker.
