The agent of FC Nordsjælland defender Jores Okore has confirmed growing transfer interest in the young Dane.

Manchester United legend Peter Schmeichel admitted only last month that he's recommended the youngster to Sir Alex Ferguson.

If a club wants him, they have to make an offer to his club in January, but Jores is focused on Nordsjælland and not the market," Nikola Juric Jaegerfeld told
