Sunderland have tabled a bid of £8 million for Dynamo Kiev striker Jeremain Lens…
Boss Dick Advocaat is desperate to boost his attack after a dire season in the PL. Only relegated Burnley scored fewer goals last season, with Sunderland failing to score in a staggering 17 of their 38 matches (45%). Jermain Defoe arrived in January with only partial success – his wonder goals v rivals Newcastle will be seen as a pivotal moment in their survival, but was one of only four from his 17 matches. Likewise, neither Darren Fletcher, Danny Graham nor Conor Wickham has ever looked capable of scoring regularly in the PL. Advocaat knows his country man Lens from their days at PSV Eindhoven – where he hit 34 goals in 96 appearances, before joining Dynamo Kiev where he has enjoyed league and cup success in the last two seasons. The Black Cats will need more than Lens to compete next season but the Dutch International will be a good start. Jun 27 - 8:16 AM
