The Copa del Rey winner has reportedly paid less than the €7m that is said to have been the initial asking price for an outright purchase.

Cheryshev, 28, was unable to play in Valencia's Copa final win over LaLiga champion Barcelona as he was injured.

One of the stars of last year's World Cup, he impressed enough in 2018-19 to earn a permanent move, one which has been set for completion since the announcement that an agreement in principle had been reached with Villarreal on June 29.
