Niclas Jensen

Date of birth17 August 1974
Place of birthCopenhagen
NationalityDanish
Weight77 kg
Height1.80 m
PositionDefender/Midfielder

Although a virtual unknown to his English audience when he arrived at Manchester City in January, Niclas made 32 appearances for Roy Hodgson's FC Copenhagen side that brought the Danish Championship to the Parken for only the second time in 2001.

After enjoying Champions' League and UEFA Cup experience earlier in the term, he finished 2001-02 with 18 games for City as they returned to the Premiership.

A left-sided utility man, Niclas' versatility will be of great value to Denmark in the 2002 World Cup.

A strong tackler and good passer, prior to arriving at Maine Road, apart from one season (1996-97 with PSV Eindhoven), he had spent all of his career at Copenhagen.

Niclas joined Fulham in July 2005 with a two-year contract.
