“He’s a young and exciting prospect, but for now it’s important that we give him the space to focus fully on Nordsjaelland, where he is enjoying a good season.

“Once the current season is over and he’s had the opportunity to rest during the summer, we will bring him into our environment where he will get the time and support he needs to settle here in England.”

According to The Athletic’s reporter David Ornstein, FC Nordsjaelland accepted bid worth about €19.5m [£16.6m].
