Sunderland star Jeremain Lens has received a late call-up by Holland.

The 27-year-old wideman has been called into the Netherlands squad for Sunday’s friendly against Turkey.

Lens is clearly beginning to adapt to the Premier League after his £8million summer move from Dynamo Kiev, with the Dutch international scoring in the 2-2 draw against Aston Villa.

And he has been rewarded for his early season form, which includes two assists, with an international call-up.

The winger, who has 30 caps to his name, received a late call-up into the squad following Holland’s 1-0 defeat to Iceland.
