Villa defender Okore: I'm now reaching peak fitness

Aston Villa defender Jores Okore says he's now reaching peak fitness.

The 21-year-old reckons he is close to returning to peak fitness as he gets up to speed with the pace of the Premier League.

"I hurt my hamstring in pre-season, but I am feeling good now and I'm feeling comfortable," said Okore, who started in the league games against Chelsea and Liverpool and the Capital One Cup tie against Rotherham.

"I don't feel anything in my hamstring any more. Now I just need to get some air in my lungs and then I'm good to go.

"I feel fine now and I feel confident."
