But Lens spent last term on loan at another Turkish side, Fenerbahce, and had made clear his desire to quit the Championship club.

Black Cats boss Simon Grayson also wanted to get the winger off his wage bill, particularly as his attitude had been poor in pre-season.

Lens said: “My ambition is to play at the highest level and it was time to move on.”
