Agent admits Jores Okore flattered by Man Utd talk

The agent of FC Nordsjælland defender Jores Okore admits the Dane is "flattered" to be linked with Manchester United. United legend Peter Schmeichel has recommended Okore to Sir Alex Ferguson.

"I am flattered and I am sure that Jores is flattered too," Nikola Juric told bold.dk. "I believe that there are a lot of clubs interested in Jores but I have not heard anything from Manchester United. I only know that Peter Schmeichel has recommend Jores to Alex Ferguson.

"It is normal for teams in England to use two types of defenders, a stopper and a ball-playing defender like Daniel Agger. There are not a lot of these ball-playing defenders like Jores available.

"There is interest from Russia, England, Germany, France and the two big clubs in Ukraine, Shakhtar Donetsk and Dinamo Kiev and Jores is open for anything. The most important thing for him is that any potential suitor really believes in him."
