Ruiz ruled out for rest of season

Fulham winger suffers broken foot in victory over Bolton Wanderers on Saturday

Winger Bryan Ruiz joined Fulham on the final day of the summer transfer window last year

Fulham winger Bryan Ruiz will miss the rest of the season after suffering a broken foot in Saturday's Barclays Premier League win over Bolton Wanderers.

The 26-year-old Costa Rica international was carried off with 17 minutes left to play in Fulham's 3-0 victory at the Reebok Stadium.

And after Fulham's 1-1 draw with Chelsea on Monday night, the club confirmed that Ruiz had broken a metatarsal in his foot.

"He broke his foot so he will be out until June or July," said Fulham boss Martin Jol. "It is a metatarsal issue."

Ruiz joined Fulham last August from FC Twente and has made 27 League appearances, scoring two goals.
