Newcastle are being linked with 20 year-old Danish International center-back Jores Okore, who plays for Nordsjaelland in the Danish Superliga.
Jores Okore – Newcastle interested
The lad has already played four times for the full Danish side, and yet he doesn’t turn 21 until August, so the 6′ defender, who was born in Abidjan in the Ivory Coast, seems a top up-and-coming youngster, and Manchester United are also said to be interested in the player.
The Danish international defender is said to be available for around £5M and he has been very impressive for Nordsjaelland in the Champions League games this season.
Okore started his career in 2000 with Danish second division club Boldklubben af 1893 when he was just 8 years old, and he then joined Nordsjaelland in 2007.
He made his league debut against AC Horsens in April of 2011, and in September of the same year Okore made his international Youth debut for the Danish under-21 at the age of 19, and played in the UEFA Under-21 Championship Qualifier, winning 3–0 against Northern Ireland.
He then made his full International debut in a friendly against Sweden in November of 2011.
Okore has played 58 times for Nordsjaelland with two goals, and he seems a good player in the making to us.
