Coventry City have completed the signing of striker Gary Madine from Championship side Sheffield Wednesday on an initial one-month loan deal.

The 24-year old has made 13 appearances for the Owls this season, scoring one goal in a 3-0 win over Notts County in the Capital One Cup.

Having started his career with Carlisle United, Madine joined the Sky Blues on loan in October 2009 and made nine appearances for City in a three-month spell at the Ricoh Arena.

During the 2011/12 season for Sheffield Wednesday, Madine scored 18 goals in League One and City manager Steven Pressley believes the striker will add quality and physicality to the squad.

Pressley said: "We're delighted to bring in a player of Gary's quality. He is a player we've been tracking for sometime and we've always been aware of the quality he has.

"We made enquiries about availability in the summer but remained very much in Sheffield Wednesday's plans at the time.

"He is a player with a proven goal-scoring record at this level and certainly brings great presence and physicality to the team."

Madine will wear shirt No. 8 during his time at Coventry City.
