Jeremain Lens confirms Sunderland talks

Jeremain Lens confirms that he is in talks with Sunderland as he moves a step closer to leaving Dynamo Kiev.

Dynamo Kiev midfielder Jeremain Lens has confirmed that he is in talks with Sunderland over a possible move to the Stadium of Light.

Reports have suggested that the Black Cats have agreed a fee in the region of £9m for the 27-year-old, and Lens claim that he is eager to work with Dick Advocaat again after playing under the Dutchman at AZ Alkmaar and PSV Eindhoven.

"I'm not having a medical examination, but I am in talks with Sunderland," the Netherlands international is quoted as saying by

"I have never made a secret of the fact that I like the Premier League. Despite Dynamo playing in the Champions League, now it seems like a great opportunity to make the switch.

"We have previously worked well together at AZ and PSV. We know each other – that's ideal. It's not all there yet, but it should be clear that I am really keen on a transfer."

Lens, who joined Dynamo in 2013, has won 29 caps for the Dutch national side.
