The £9m signing from Lens 12 months ago had a difficult first season at the club, making just 14 Premier League starts and at one point being forced to train with the under-21’s after the then boss, Sam Allardyce, questioned his commitment.

The Dutch winger is determined to have a better season this time around and wants to show new man Moyes that he is worthy of a regular start for the Black Cats.

“What happened last year is in the past now,” Lens told the Echo. “I have started a new season and I want to look forward. Hopefully, it’s going to be a better season for me now.

“I had a hernia operation in February, and I have really been building up again from that moment. I think it helps that I was quite fit at the end of last season, and I was able to train by myself in the summer to get even fitter.

“I came back quite fit, and now I can start a new season. I had an injury last season, but I know I need to step up a bit more.

“Hopefully, Sunderland fans will see some more from me this season. I try to do my best in every game and every training session, and hopefully I can show the Sunderland fans why the club bought me.”
