Simon Kjaer

After emerging through the ranks at FC Midtjylland, the bright lights of Serie A beckoned for Kjaer as Palermo handed this talented central defender a chance to make a huge step up in his career in 2008 and it gave him a passport to the 2010 Danish World Cup squad.

With his reputation rising and his transfer value increasing, a host of big-name clubs and lucrative offers were thrust before Kjaer and he opted to make the move to the Bundesliga in 2010, signing for Wolfsburg. However, he failed to prove his worth in northern Germany and has spent the last season on loan at Serie A side Roma.

He played a key role in his nation’s Euro 2012 qualifying campaign and even though he has not always been a first pick at club level this season, he should take up a central role in Morten Olsen’s plans in Poland and Ukraine this summer.
