Villarreal president Fernando Roig says Denis Suarez will not be leaving in January, but Denis Cheryshev could join from Real Madrid.

“He’s a player who everyone likes,” Roig is quoted as saying by AS. “The coach likes him and if it were possible he’d be very useful to the team and a great signing. We’ll try and see what happens and if it’s possible.”

On Suarez, Roig added: “Denis has a contract for four more years and as of now there’s no chance of him leaving, at the moment there’s just no way.

“There are options at the end of the season, this summer, but until the end of the year there’s no possibility.”
