Sunderland winger Jeremain Lens has insisted he is going nowhere amid speculation that he could leave the club this month.
The 28-year-old Netherlands international, who headed for Wearside from Dynamo Kiev during the summer for an initial £8m, had been linked with Ajax and Roma after failing to force his way into manager Sam Allardyce’s plans.
However, he has started the last three games and is adamant he is focused only on the Black Cats’ fight against relegation from the Premier League.
Lens told the Sunderland Echo: “I never spoke about leaving. It’s the media and all the things around me. We will see what happens. I’m a Sunderland player and I’m focused on Sunderland.
“I’m happy that I’m playing, but I wasn’t with the result at Spurs. Let’s hope I’m playing in the next game and we can get a good result.”
