Jeremian Lens Completes Permanent Transfer To Besiktas From Sunderland

share on:

Turkish side Besiktas have exercised their right to sign Sunderland winger Jeremian Lens on a permanent basis.

The Dutch international has enjoyed loan spells at Fenerbahce and Besiktasin the last two years. Sunderland signed the 30-year-old from Dynamo Kyiv for £9m three years ago.

A statement on the club’s official website,, said: “As stated in our report dated 07.08.2017, the final purchase option for Jeremain Marciano Lens, loaned from Sunderland for the 2017-18 season, was used on 28.02.2018.”

Jeremian Lens joined the Black Cats on a four-year deal in an £8million move from Dynamo Kiev in July 2015 under then manager Dick Advocaat.

However, after a successful start to his career in England, his form dipped following Advocaat’s departure just three months later and his wage packet became a burden on an increasingly cash-strapped club.
