Dynamo Kiev sign Jeremain Lens

Ukranian side Dynamo Kiev have this evening announced the signing of PSV Eindhoven striker Jeremain Lens.

The 25-year old moves to the Olimpiyskiy National Sports Complex on a four-year contract after stating he was looking for a fresh challenge in his career away from the Dutch Eredivisie.

His reported move was mentioned last week on Voetbal International and will move to his new side for a fee believed to be just over £8 million.

The forward has been linked with a move away from his home nation over recent seasons, with a move to the Premier League with Southampton falling through last summer after the club turned their attentions to Zambia forward Emmanuel Mayuka.

Lens has been in impressive form at the Philips Stadion after scoring 34 goals in 96 apperances for the club since joining in 2010 from rivals AZ Alkmaar for a reported fee of £5.5 million.

He completed a medical in the Ukraine yesterday and his contract will earn him just over £1.5 million a season.
