Sow, who is 32-years-old, was released by Nottingham Forest at the end of last season.
He has been weighing up his options as a free agent since the end of June.
However, the Mali international has now gone back to where his career started.
Sow started out in the youth set-up at Lens and made his first-team debut in 2009.
He went on to make 99 appearances for the French side before leaving in 2013 for spells in Turkey at Kardemir Karabükspor and Kayserispor.
The tough-tackling midfielder spent four seasons in the Turkish top flight before moving to Dynamo Moscow.
He played 43 times during his stint in Ukraine before his move to Nottingham Forest came about.
Sow rocked up at the City Ground in August 2019 and penned a two-year deal with the Championship side.
He made a combined 42 appearances in all competitions during his time with the Reds before they decided to cut ties with him this past summer.
The veteran will be excited to get going again this season with Lens.
They are currently 3rd in Ligue 1 behind PSG and Marseille after their strong start to the campaign.
