Middlesbrough have been surprised to be linked with Olympiacos striker Luis Diogo.

The Sunday Sun says reports claiming Boro are tracking Diogo - who only moved to Greece from Samba side Portuguesa in a £7 million switch in the summer - have alarmed the club on whose behalf self-styled "Boro scout" Derek Bragg insists he is working . . .as they have never heard of him!

"Diogo is a very good player, he can make it at the Premier League," Bragg told the Greek Press, following Olympiakos' UEFA Cup win over Danish side Nordsjaelland last week.

"I watch him and I will keep watching him. He has a good chance to make a brilliant career in England."
