Jeremain Lens: Ends Sunderland stay

Sunderland outcast Jeremain Lens says he wants to stay with Fenerbahce, where he is currently on loan.

The 29-year-old winger joined Sunderland in 2015 for £9.6million from Dynamo Kiev, but despite playing 20 times in the Premier League the player never settled on Wearside.

He apparently claimed he wanted Sunderland to be relegated, which enraged Moyes and before that he angered Sam Allardyce after refusing to conduct a post-match work-out, so it was no surprise when he left for Fenerbahce on loan last summer.

And now after 29 appearances and five goals for the Turkish side Lens, whose contract expires in two years, wants to stay.

Lens told beIN Sport: “First of all it’s not up to me what my future will bring me because I have a contract for two more years in Sunderland, so let’s see what happens this summer.

“Fenerbahce is a really good team and I’m happy to play for Fenerbahce. I would like to play here for one more year or maybe longer than one year.

“I play for Fenerbahce, hopefully I can continue to play for Fenerbahce.”
