Denis Calincov (born 15 September 1985 in Chişinău, Moldavian SSR) is a Moldovan football striker. Previously he played for Moldovan club Zimbru and R.S.C. Anderlecht. He has played international matches for Moldova.

Club career[edit]

Calincov joined Anderlecht on a three-year deal at the age of 16 from CSF Zimbru Chisinau in his homeland. A combination of injuries and form frustrated his attempts to make a first-team appearance at Anderlecht. In 2004 the left winger joined Dutch UEFA Cup entrants SC Heerenveen making only two appearances for the club. He was then signed for the 2005 campaign by Heracles Almelo. He was injured for almost a year, after tearing a muscle in his abdomen.

Later followed a two-year stay by SC Cambuur without any success. He returned to his home country, Moldova to play for Academia UTM Chişinău.

In Summer 2009, he signed for Azerbaijani club, Khazar Lankaran.

International career[edit]

Calincov attracted the attention of several major clubs across Europe at the 2002 UEFA European Under-17 Championship in Denmark. Moldova lost all three games in the tournament, but Calincov scored five goals. He has also been capped at U19, U21 and senior level.
