Besiktas goalkeeper Vedran Runje is reportedly close to joining Lens on a three-year deal.

The French club are believed to have agreed a package worth ‚é¼1million (£675,000) for the 31-year-old shot-stopper.

Runje has been given assurances that he will get the chance to compete with Charles Itandje for the starting spot.

Lens have already confirmed that Itandje's current back-up, Sebastien Chabbert, is to join Ligue 2 side Amiens.

Meanwhile, Lens striker Daniel Cousin has reiterated his desire to depart the Stade Bollaert club over the summer.

Cousin, who claims he will cost ‚é¼2million (£1.35m), wants to move to Spain or England and has rejected Nancy's offer.

"I won't start next season here, it is out of the question and I won't join Nancy," he told But.

"I can leave for ‚é¼2million. England and Spain have always attracted me. We will see what happens."
