Jeremain Lens has completed his loan move from Sunderland to Fenerbahce, the Premier League club have announced.

Holland international Lens, who arrived on Wearside just over 12 months ago after signing from Dinamo Kiev for £8million, has joined the Turkish side on a season-long loan.

The 28-year-old managed just 16 starts in all competitions for Sunderland and has featured as a substitute twice this season under new manager David Moyes.

Fenerbahce boss Dick Advocaat signed Lens for Sunderland but following the Dutchman's departure, the winger found himself marginalised under replacement Sam Allardyce.

Lens hit out at Sunderland earlier in the week in an interview with Fox Sports.

He said: "Sunderland would just love to get rid of me. I did not play, was not even on the bench.

"I just had a problem with the club. What? No idea."

Lens could return to England in October, with his new club facing Manchester United at Old Trafford in the Europa League.
