He’s only been at Sunderland for a few months, but Jeremain Lens says he could leave in January due to a lack of playing time.
The 28-year-old was left out of the squad for Saturday’s 3-1 defeat at Chelsea for “disciplinary” reasons and has not started a game for the Black Cats since the 3-0 derby victory over Newcastle on October 25.
“It’s definitely annoying,” he told Fox Sports. “I am not playing and I did not come to the Premier League to sit on the bench. Something will have to change anything. What, we will see though.
“A transfer in the winter? That could happen. Once the window is open, we will see what will happen.”
