We won't sell Jørgensen, say FCK

FC Copenhagen have denied reports that young striker Nicolai Jørgensen is on his way to the UK for talks with West Ham over a potential transfer.

Danish media outlet Tipsbladet claimed yesterday that the 22-year-old forward was set for imminent discussions with representatives of West Ham. However those rumours were well and truly squashed this evening when Copenhagen director Anders Hørsholt scoffed reports of Jørgensen's departure.

"It is our policy that we do not comment one way or the other kind of guesswork about players who could be on the way in or out of FC Copenhagen," he said. "But when a rumour like this arises, it is important for us to make it clear that we are going to strengthen our squad and not weaken it."

The Danish club are currently bottom of the Superliga, having lost all three of their league matches so far this season. Jørgensen is yet to get off the mark in the current campaign.
