Okore is clearly relaxed at his new club.
Aston Villa secured a scoop a week ago when they beat Chelsea and Manchester United to the signing of Jores Okore, but the youngster has revealed he fell asleep during his medical in Birmingham.
Okore signed for £4m after snubbing offers from two Champions League sides and clearly feels at home at his new club by making his bed in an MRI scanner.
“I am placed in the scanner and start a two hour session. I have to remain completely quiet. I am listening to some radio while I keep wondering how it all will be like,” the 20-year-old told the Birmingham Mail.
“How will my new life in Birmingham be? Am I going to speak English with a British twang. I doze off after half an hour and wake up an hour later.
“I am still in the scanner thinking: “Oh, this is taking up a decade.’ I am starting to feel a bit on edge and I want to find out how my agent is getting on with negotiations. Fortunately the MRI scan is all fine!”
Despite the worries from the defender Okore completed his medical and made the move to Villa Park, as manager Paul Lambert looks to improve his squad after a disappointing campaign in 2012/13.
With the Denmark international’s record at such a young age it’s easy to see why Chelsea and United were tracking the centre-back, with the Blues even making a move for the FC Nordsjaelland player.
Yet with a wise – and drowsy – head on young shoulders Okore made it clear that he did not want to just sit on the bench at Stamford Bridge and instead chose Villa.
Last season the Dane played 35 matches in all competitions for Nordsjaelland, including five games in the Champions League and has earned seven caps for Denmark.
Okore will join up with his new Villa teammates on July 1.
