Sunderland boss David Moyes brands Jeremain Lens "disgracefully disrespectful" following the Dutchman's comments about the club earlier this week.

Sunderland boss David Moyes has branded Jeremain Lens "disgracefully disrespectful" after the attacker's comments to the Turkish media earlier this week.

Netherlands international Lens is still contracted to Sunderland - the club that he joined from Dynamo Kiev in 2015 - but is currently on loan at Turkish outfit Fenerbahce.

On Thursday, Lens was quoted as saying that he would potentially receive a favourable move away from the Stadium of Light if Sunderland were relegated from the Premier League this season.

Moyes has blasted the 29-year-old for his comments and suggested that there would no longer be a future for the Dutchman at the English club.

"It's disgracefully disrespectful to the club which holds his registration. You would hate to think that anybody who was connected to a club had said that," Moyes told reporters.

"Maybe when he left people thought, 'What are you doing, getting rid of him?' I don't know if anybody would want him back at the club now. If the quotes are correct, then I think it would be very hard for that to happen."

As it stands, Lens is due to return to Sunderland at the end of the 2016-17 campaign.
