Aston Villa have confirmed the signing of defender Jores Okore from Nordsjaelland. The 20-year-old Denmark international underwent a medical today and has agreed a four-year deal with Villa.

Okore told Aston Villa's official website: "I know there is great potential in the team. I have watched many of our games because the Premier League is very popular back in Denmark. I know also that we have a good coach and this is a really good club. This is the right club for me, I feel it straight away."

Okore most recently featured as a second-half substitute in Denmark's FIFA World Cup™ qualifying 4-0 loss at home to Armenia.
