Nicolai Stokholm knows FC Nordsjællands teammate Jores Okore is likely to leave in 2013.

The young Danish defender has been linked with Manchester United and Chelsea this season.

"He is a very important player for our team, but we also know that he is in the process of rapid development, and that plenty of clubs keeps an eye on him," Stokholm told

"There is no doubt that Jores at the right time is going to have new challenges, but I still believe that he can learn to play where he is. I hope he is here for the summer also."
