OUT-OF-CONTRACT Swindon Town defender Raphael Branco has been linked with a move to Portuguese side Boavista, according to reports in Portugal.

Branco has spent the last four years at Town but sees his current deal expire at the end of this month, although he has been offered new terms to stay at the County Ground.

The 26-year-old Brazilian can sign for another club on a free transfer from July 1 and reports in Portugal state that is likely to be Boavista in the Primeira Liga.

According to those claims, boss Miguel Leal is set to lose several of his current central defenders this summer so Branco has been lined up as a replacement.
