(Corrects currency conversion in 1st paragraph)

COPENHAGEN, June 3 (Reuters) - Danske Bank, which has been embroiled in a major money laundering scandal, has agreed to sell its portfolio of Estonian private loans to LHV Pank in a deal worth 410 million euros ($458.3 million), LHV said on Monday.

Danske Bank said last year it had begun closing parts of its Estonian business which has been at the centre of an investigation into alleged money laundering and prompted a U.S. criminal investigation.
