Coventry City striker Gary Madine has revealed that he is "delighted" to extend his loan stay with the club.

The 24-year-old, currently on loan from Championship outfit Sheffield Wednesday, joined the club initially on loan for a month before further extending his stay last week, which will see him with the club until January 4th.

Madine has two goals in his first five appearances for the Sky Blues and believes he will score more goals as he continues to get fit with first-team action.

"I'm delighted to stay I really am," Madine said.

"I'm getting on really well with everyone so when the opportunity came to extend the deal I couldn't say no at all. I've settled in really quickly, there is a good group of lads here they're so loud! They play little pranks to get you involved and get closer to the group.

"Match fitness wise I'm getting there, but I'm still not there yet. I've only played five games and blew up at about the 70 minute mark against Colchester, but the next couple of games I'll continue to improve, work hard for 90 minutes and give my all to the cause. I feel I can only get better really.

"My record is alright, two goals and two assists isn't bad but we've analysed all the other games - against Colchester I could have had five or six with two cleared off the line. In my first game I got a great ball from John Fleck which I think I would've scored from if I was fitter and more confident. So I think I should have more - probably about five or six but I'll take two for now.

"I'm a team player I want the team to get as many points as we can, fingers crossed we can do well over the christmas period and climb the table."
