Aston Villa have confirmed the signing of defender Jores Okore from FC Nordsjaelland.

The 20-year-old Denmark international underwent a medical today and has agreed a four-year deal with Villa.

Villa also today confirmed the signing of midfielder Leandro Bacuna from FC Groningen on a three-year contract.

Okore told www.avfc.co.uk: "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."
