FC Nordsjaelland say Jores Okore will be allowed to leave the club if offers are received for the starlet defender.

The 19-year-old has been linked with some of the Premier League premier clubs, including Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle.

Furthermore, German pair Borussia Dortmund and Wolfsburg and Ukraine's Dynamo Kiev and Shakhtar Donetsk have also been mentioned as potential admirers.

Such is the interest in Okore, that his Danish club are ready to let him leave, a move which is sure to spark a scramble for his services.

"There is on-going interest in several players, and it is no wonder that Jores is one of those players," sports director Jan Laursen told Tipsbladet.

"There are undoubtedly many very strong clubs that follow him.

"We have a principle that we always look at the offers that might come. We want to help our players on."

The People reported prior to Laursen's comments that a host of clubs were linked with the centre-back, who has already been recognised by his country.

The Premier League quintet are set to battle it out for Okore, all of which are in need of defensive resources in the January transfer window.

The Toon have already moved for further defensive options in the form of Watford's Adrian Mariappa, after seeing former target James Tomkins sign a new deal with Championship side West Ham United.
