Villa complete Okore signing

Paul Lambert has continued his impressive summer spending with the capture of Jores Okore - the Denmark international who was on Chelsea's radar in January.

The Aston Villa manager has completed his second signing in less than a week with the signing of the FC Nordsjaelland central defender for a fee believed to be in the region of £4 million.

Okore, 20, completed a medical and agreed a four-year contract at Villa today and Lambert believes the defender can make a "huge impact" on the Premier League.

He fits the profile Lambert has introduced in the last 12 months at Villa and Okore feels moving to Villa Park will enable him to get the amount of games he is looking for to progress his career, rather than being forced to sit on the bench at a higher profile club like Chelsea.

"We’re a young team and we played some really good football over the second half of last season which is something we want to build on now as players, as a team and as a club," Okore said.

"I know there is great potential in the team. I have watched many of our games because the Premier League is very popular back in Denmark.

"I know also that we have a good coach and this is a really good club. This is the right club for me, I feel it straight away.

"We have a lot to show and we have a long way to go. We want to get to an even higher level of performance and show people who we are, that we can be a really good team. The manager is determined to develop us and to help us become better players, proving to people that we can become a top team. We can get some exciting things going here.

"We have good players all around. It’s going to be tough but I really hope I can go in and show myself and be a big part of the team. I want to bring something new to our game and really help the team into a new era. That’s what I hope to do."

Okore has been a key player in FC Nordsjaelland’s success over the past three seasons, winning their first Superliga title in 2011-12 and the Danish Cup in 2010-11 and Lambert believes that Okore’s acquisition will bolster his central defensive unit, which conceded far too many goals last season.

"He’s only 20 years of age and that’s good but he’s also an international player at a really young age and he’s played Champions League football as well, which is testament to his potential," Lambert said.

"Jores has played in big games but he’s a very humble lad and he will be a really good addition to our team and to our squad. I’m pleased that we’ve signed a player of his stature, for he is someone who can come in and make a huge impact.

"There’s a great opportunity for him here and the competition for places is something that’s really important. You want to try to have that throughout the team."
