Tottenham ace Rafael van der Vaart is backing their move for FC Twente star Bryan Ruiz.

The Costa Rica international revealed interest from Spurs earlier this week, admitting his agent had been contacted by representatives from White Hart Lane.

"He's a smart, technically sound player who I think would fit in well with us," Van der Vaart said. "He would add class and sophistication to Tottenham. If you're technically sound and cleverly play between the lines, you can really make a difference. I think that Ruiz is perfect."
