Jacobsen reveals interest

FC Copenhagen full-back Lars Jacobsen has revealed he has received offers from a number of European clubs.

The former West Ham defender is out of contract at the end of the season, when he is set to depart the Danish Superliga side.

The 34-year-old veteran, whose Denmark side missed out on this summer's World Cup, is surprised at the interest shown in him.

"There have been more offers than I thought," Jacobsen told Danmarks Radio.

"It's nice that there are still some who keep me in mind."

Jacobsen's agent Mikkel Nissen has hailed his client and believes there is a deserved amount of interest in him.

"I can confirm that we have received serious offers and enquiries from both Danish and foreign clubs," he said. "That also includes some of the bigger leagues in Europe.

"Lars is, in my opinion, the best right-back in Scandinavia and I feel that the interest has confirmed that."
