Fulham winger Bryan Ruiz has suffered a broken foot and will miss the remainder of the season.

Ruiz was injured in Saturday's 3-0 win at Bolton and had to be carried off after 73 minutes. Fulham manager Martin Jol suggested after the game Ruiz had broken a metatarsal and on Monday confirmed the extent of the problem.

Speaking after the 1-1 draw with west London rivals Chelsea on Monday, Jol estimated the Costa Rica international would be out of action until the summer.

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