Jeremain Lens has labelled his move from PSV Eindhoven to Dynamo Kiev as "a step forward" after switching to Ukraine for an undisclosed fee.
The 25-year-old striker has signed a four-year deal to end his three-year spell with PSV, for whom he scored 34 Eredivisie goals in 96 games.
The Netherlands international has spent his entire club career in his native country having started out at AZ Alkmaar.
He told PSV’s official website after finalising his move to Dynamo: "For me this is a step forward.
"I put no secret of the fact that I have signed a very good contract, but sport is very important for me."
Lens won the Eredivisie with AZ in 2008-09.
