The Premier League outfit were expected to complete the transfer of the 20-year-old defender, who has agreed a four-year contract with the Midlands outfit.
"We're a young team and we played some really good football over the second half of last season which is something we want to build on now as players, as a team and as a club," Okore told the club's official website.
Manager Paul Lambert added: "He's only 20 years of age and that's good but he's also an international player at a really young age and he's played Champions League football as well, which is testament to his potential."
Okore completed a medical today.
