Reports out of Scandinavia suggest that Nordsjaelland defender Jores Okore will hold talks with Aston Villa this weekend.

The 20-year old Ivory Coast-born Denmark international has already been linked with a number of Premier League clubs including Chelsea, Fulham and Liverpool but it appears as though a shift to Birmingham could be arranged.

Okores rose to prominence in England during the Champions League group stage this season with impressive performances against Chelsea, Juventus and Shakhtar Donetsk.
