Ivorian international Bonaventure Kalou has left Lens, after playing just four games for the club.
Kalou made the switch from Paris Saint Germain to Lens in July, after he fell-out with Paul Le Guen and club officials.
However, after taking part in just four games this season, the forward has moved to Al-Jazira, in a £1million deal.
Lens' newly appointed coach Jean-Pierre Papin confirmed that Kalou has left the club.
"We can't keep him if he doesn't want to stay any longer. Nowadays, players rule the roost and he we have to respect what they want," Papin explained.
