Aston Villa will pay an initial transfer fee of ￡1.2 million — which could rise to ￡2 million — for the Danish Superliga Player of the Year, who scored 16 goals in 33 Superligaen appearances for AaB last season.
“Nicklas is a young lad but also a full international with a good goalscoring record in Denmark and he’ll prove himself in the Premier League,” said Villa boss Paul Lambert.cheap soccer jerseys
“The opportunity will be there for him, as it will be for the rest of the lads, and he has all the attributes to go and take it.
“He wants to go and make a name and a career for himself and he’s made a good start at Aalborg. It’s a case of continuing to work hard and building on that and I believe he can.
“He’s a good player and the potential is there for him to grow into the team and grow with the team. He’ll definitely be able to give the team a hand.”
In all likelihood, the arrival of Helenius will lead to the sale of club record signing Darren Bent, who joined Villa from Sunderland in a deal initially worth ￡18 million in January 2011.
Premier League newcomers Hull City and Newcastle United are reportedly keen on Bent.cheap jerseys
Little has gone right for the 29-year-old England international, in terms of football, over the past 12 months.
However, Bent did tie the knot with model Kirsty Maclaren at Ely Cathedral in Cambridge on Saturday.
Fortunately for Bent, some things are more important than football.
