Jores Okore: Highly-rated Danish defender
Jores Okore's agent has denied that the player is on his way to England, with Swansea boss Michael Laudrup linked with a move for the Denmark international.
Okore is already on the radar of a host of clubs with Manchester City, Liverpool and Tottenham all linked.
But latest reports suggest the 19-year-old is also wanted by the new Swansea boss.
Okore's agent Nikola Juric admits that his client has attracted interest from several clubs abroad but has played down the possibility of a move, as Nordsjaelland are directly qualified to the group stage of the UEFA Champions League.
"Of course there is interest in Jores, and he is very flattered by it," he told Bold.
"But, the intention has always been for him to play in FC Nordsjaelland and now there is the added bonus of the Champions League.
"Imagine being 19 years old and having that in front of you. So for now he is going to stay. He'll take those experiences with him, and then he can move on in six to 18 months.
"They are all very funny stories, but right now there is a stronger possibility of me seeing God than Jores ending up in Manchester. He is a very promising player but the main objective for him is to play. Rather play now than warming the bench at a huge club."
