Lens joins Sunderland

first_img Press Association It is understood the Black Cats have paid a fee in the region of £8million for the 27-year-old, who can play on the wing or as a forward. He is reunited with head coach Dick Advocaat, having previously played under him at PSV Eindhoven and AZ Alkmaar. Holland midfielder Jeremain Lens has completed his move from Dynamo Kiev to Sunderland, signing a four-year contract with the Wearside club on Wednesday. center_img Advocaat said: “We have signed an international player and I am delighted to welcome him to Sunderland. “He is a very well-known player in Europe and has played over 30 games for the Dutch national side, which shows his calibre. “I have worked with him twice already, at PSV and AZ, so I know him well; he is fast and he has scored goals everywhere he has played so that will help the team.” Lens brings experience of both the Champions League and Europa League to the Stadium of Light, and also has a number of honours to his name, having won the Eredivisie with AZ in 2009, the KNVB Cup with PSV in 2012 and the Ukrainian Premier League with Dynamo this past season. Black Cats sporting director Lee Congerton said: “We’re absolutely delighted to sign a player of Jeremain’s quality, who has Champions League experience and is a regular for Holland, one of the world’s strongest national teams. “He’s a direct and quick player with or without the ball and those characteristics are something we’ve been lacking as a side.” Lens’ arrival completes a mixed day for Sunderland in the transfer market as they saw a move for Zenit St Petersburg defender Nicolas Lombaerts fall through. Sources close to the club have indicated that the deal fell apart because of an issue picked up by medics. Rumours that the 30-year-old Belgium international had failed a medical began to circulate on Tuesday evening, and it is understood that a proposed £5million transfer has now been put on hold. last_img read more

Glasgow 2014: Okagbare completes sprint double

first_imgBlessing Okagbare last night completed a sprint double by also adding the 200m gold to the 100m she won on Monday at the ongoing 20th Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland. The African record holder in the short sprint ran 22.25seconds to pick the precious medal.England duo of Jodie Williams and Bianca Williams ran their personal bests of 22.50 and 22.58 to settle for the silver and bronze medals respectively.Nobody doubted Okagbare’s capacity to add the 200m gold, most especially after she opted out of the women’s long jump to have full concentration. Her 22.25 was just 500th of a second outside of the Commonwealth record of 22.20 held by Merlene Ottey since the Brisbane Games in 1982.She showed flashes of what to expect in the final when she easily defeated Jodie Williams to win her semi final with a dazzling 22.43.Like she did in the 100m, Okagbare powered out of the block in lane six and held on to her position into the curve of the home stretch. By the time she was 100m into the race, it was obvious that the Delta girl had won the race as she was comfortably in the lead of her specialty event.Interestingly, another Delta girl, Ese Brume who see Okagbare as mentor, won the women’s long jump gold medal against all expectations.Brume who qualified 5th  from her Group A into the final of the event with a low 6.29m, shocked all others including Bahamas’ Bianca Stuart who led with 6.67m and Chantel Malone (6.55) to jump 6.56m to claim the first position and the gold. England’s Jazmin Sawyers won the silver with 6.54m while Christable Nettey of Canada with 6.49m settled for the consolatory bronze medal. Amaka Ogoegbuman who also ran in the final of the 400m hurdles could not make the podium as she was disqualified in the event won by Kaliese Spencer of Jamaica (54.10secs). Scotland’s Eilidh Child (55.02) and Janiere Russell of Jamaica (55.64)won the silver and bronze of the barrier 400m event.last_img read more
