Jores Okore is making a fresh start in B6 after missing the majority of the previous campaign through injury.

Ivory Coast-born Okore joined Villa from Danish side Nordsjaelland in June 2013.

The Denmark international made his debut at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea where he replaced the injured Ciaran Clark a few minutes shy of half-time.

His first start came in Villa's home meeting with Liverpool.

In just his fourth game against Newcastle United in September 2013, the 22-year-old required surgery after rupturing knee ligaments which kept him out for the remainder of the 2013-14 season.

At the age of 19, Okore made his Denmark U21 debut in a UEFA U21 championship qualifier.

His senior debut came a month later in a friendly against Sweden.

Okore has since won seven caps for the senior Denmark side.

He has publically expressed his excitement and anticipation for this term with Villa.
