Lens was signed by former Sunderland boss Dick Advocaat last summer but has struggled to really make a mark at the Stadium of Light.

The Dutch winger is now seemingly set to be reunited with Advocaat for a fourth time, having previously worked with the current Fener coach at AZ Alkmaar and PSV Eindhoven.

Reports in Turkey say Lens will travel to Istanbul on Monday ahead of a medical, before completing a season-long loan switch to Fenerbahce with the option of a permanent deal.

Meanwhile, the Black Cats had been linked with former striker Gyan and the Ghanaian had suggested he would be open to a return to Wearside.

It remains to be seen if Sunderland did make a concrete offer to the 30-year-old and Championship club Reading have now confirmed he is due in Berkshire for a medical ahead of a loan switch from China’s Shanghai SIPG.
