MOSCOW, August 11 (R-Sport) - Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti says Russia winger Denis Cheryshev will not be loaned out to seek more playing time but must stay at the Bernabeu and fight for his place.
The 22-year-old signed a four-year deal this summer to join the Real Madrid first team from the reserves, but had been looking to go out on loan because he trails Marcelo and Fabio Coentrao in the pecking order.
"He will stay and play with us and will arrive next week," Real's website quoted Ancelotti as saying.
Cheryshev had been linked with a move to Zenit St. Petersburg, Borussia Dortmund and Cardiff City, among others.
He is currently with Fabio Capello's Russia team preparing for Wednesday's World Cup qualifier against Northern Ireland in Belfast.
