"Over the moon" - Sunderland fans react on Twitter to Jeremain Lens signing

Sunderland have completed the signing of Dutch winger Jeremain Lens.

As seen above, Sunderland have wrapped up the signing of Dynamo Kiev winger Jeremain Lens, for a fee in the region of £8m, according to BBC Sport.

Sunderland have struggled to score goals in recent years, but manager Dick Advocaat has now taken steps to rectify that by landing Lens.

The 27-year-old has left Ukraine after just two years with Dynamo Kiev, choosing to reunite with his former PSV Eindhoven boss Advocaat on Wearside.

Lens offer pace and a real goal threat out wide, something Sunderland have been desperately lacking of late - and that hasn't escaped Sunderland fans.

Black Cats supporters took to Twitter after the announcement of Lens' arrival, suggesting that he was exactly what they have been missing, backing the winger to have a real impact at the Stadium of Light.

Fans were delighted and even 'over the moon' in some instances, with Lens representing a real signal of intent for Sunderland, given his transfer fee.

Here are some of the reactions from Sunderland fans on Twitter after Lens joined Adam Matthews and Sebastian Coates in signing for the Black Cats this summer...
