Russia Star Cheryshev Joins Valencia On Loan
  • PublishedAugust 15, 2018

Russia winger Denis Cheryshev, one of the standout performers at the World Cup this summer, has returned to Valencia for the second stint on loan from Villarreal.

The 27-year-old, who scored four goals as Russia reached the quarter-finals on home soil, will rejoin Valencia on a season-long loan having spent six months at Mestalla in 2016.

Cheryshev moved to Spain as a child and came up through the Real Madrid academy before joining Villarreal on a five-year deal in 2016 after a series of loan spells.

He will again link up with Valencia coach Marcelino, after playing under him at Villarreal in 2014-15.

Cheryshev provides another attacking option to a club that has brought in Michy Batshuayi, who is on loan from Chelsea, and former Atletico Madrid striker Kevin Gameiro in the close season.
