City clinch deadline day loan deal for Swansea City forward Rory Donnelly until the end of the season...

Coventry City have signed striker Rory Donnelly on a loan deal from Premier League side Swansea City until the end of the season.

The 21-year old joined the Swans in December 2011 from Northern Irish side Cliftonville after he scored 22 goals in 54 league and cup appearances.
 
City manager Steven Pressley said he was delighted to secure the services of a striker he believes has a big future.

The City boss said: "We believe Rory has fantastic potential and will add a lot of quality to our group.

"We're delighted to bring him in on loan until the end of the season and it is a huge boost to the squad to get him in.

"I believe our style of play will suit him. I have said that I wanted to bring in strikers throughout the window and after securing Nathan Delfouneso yesterday, this creates real competition up front."
