    HEREDIA, Costa Rica – Herediano announced Wednesday via its Twitter that forward Yendrick Ruiz has returned to the club for the 2018 Costa Rican Clausura season.

    Ruiz -- the brother of Costa Rica standout Bryan Ruiz – was sent to Thailand’s Buriram United on a loan deal in December 2016, but ultimately signed with Bangkok Glass and loaned to Thai second-division side Chiangmai FC.

    The 30-year-old is also the Florenses’ all-time leading Scotiabank CONCACAF Champions league scorer with nine goals, including three in the 2016/17 edition. He led the 2016 Costa Rican Invierno with 13 goals.

    Ruiz last appeared for Costa Rica as a 64th minute substitute in a 3-1 win over visiting Panama in a third-round CONCACAF qualifier for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
