Fulham have taken up the option of extending Brian Ruiz’s contract by an extra year.

The Costa Rica forward, 29, looked to be on his way out of Craven Cottage in January when he agreed a loan move to Spanish side Levante.

But Fifa refused to ratify the move as not all of the paperwork was completed before the transfer window closed.

He returned to make a further 12 appearances in the latter half of the campaign, ending with five goals in 32 games in all competitions.
