The 28-year old joins the Sky Blues to bolster City's forward options with 15 games remaining in the 2014/15 League One season...
Coventry City have completed the emergency loan signing of Brentford striker Nick Proschwitz until the end of the season.
The Sky Blues face high-flying MK Dons at the Ricoh Arena on Saturday and the German forward will go straight into contention for the weekend's game.
The 28-year old has spent the majority of his career in his homeland, featuring for Wolfsburg II, Hamburg II and Hannover II.
Proschwitz moved to SC Paderborn in 2011 and his impressive haul of 17 goals in 33 league games captured the attention of Premier League Hull City in 2012.
He spent two years with the Tigers before sealing a move to Championship side Brentford at the start of the 2014/15 season.
Interim manager Neil MacFarlane said: "We're delighted to bring in a player we've been tracking at this club for a long time.
"Nick is your typical target-man who can bring others into play and will give us an added threat in the forward areas.
"We've got a crucial game against MK Dons at the weekend and he'll go straight into contention for the game, and I'm sure he'll have a positive impact from now until the end of the season."
