Denis Dmitriyevich Cheryshev (Russian: Дени́с Дми́триевич Че́рышев; born 26 December 1990) is a Russian footballer who plays for Spanish club Villarreal CF, on loan from Real Madrid, as a left winger.
He soon followed him to his next club, Burgos CF, entering the team's youth system at the age of nine. During his spell, Cheryshev was selected to play for the youth levels of the Castile and León autonomous football team.
From 2010 to 2012, also in the third level, Cheryshev played 61 matches and scored 11 goals for the B's. He was an important offensive unit as the latter campaign ended in promotion to Segunda División, after a five-year absence.
Cheryshev made his debut in division two on 17 August 2012, playing the full 90 minutes in a 1–2 away loss against Villarreal CF. On 27 November he played his first official game with the first team, a 3–0 home win against CD Alcoyano for the season's Copa del Rey (7–1 on aggregate).
Despite the possibility of a permanent deal at Sevilla, Cheryshev chose to instead join Villarreal CF on loan for the 2014–15 season. He scored on his Villarreal debut on 24 August, the second goal of a 2–0 win at Levante UD in the first weekend of the season.
Even though he stated in a January 2011 interview to sports daily Marca that he "felt more Spanish than Russian", Cheryshev was called up to the Russian national team for the first time on 6 November 2012, for a friendly game against the United States eight days later. He made his debut in the 2–2 draw, playing the same opponent as father Dmitri 20 years earlier.
Cheryshev played his first competitive game on 14 August 2013, when he came on as a half-time substitute in a 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Northern Ireland in Belfast. However, after just five minutes on the pitch, he had to be replaced due to injury, in an eventual 0–1 loss.
Cheryshev was called up to a provisional 25-man squad for the 2014 FIFA World Cup on 16 May 2014, being the only player present not playing his club football in Russia. He was, however, left out of Fabio Capello's final list.
