Coventry City have agreed the loan extension of Sheffield Wednesday striker Gary Madine until January 30.
 
The Sky Blues signed the 24-year-old on an initial month's loan deal from the Championship side in October and extended the loan until January 4.

Madine, who has 10 appearances for City during his loan spell, will now stay with the club for a further three matches which fulfils the 93-day emergency loan quota.
 
Madine has scored three goals for the club during his loan spell, including the second goal in the 2-0 win over Port Vale in December.
 
City boss Steven Pressley has revealed his delight at the striker's extended stay and expressed a desire to keep him at the club past the loan extension.
 
Pressley said: "We're delighted to be able to extend Gary's stay at the club. He has been an integral part of the team since joining the club and has displayed a terrific attitude.
 
"Gary has became a focal point of the way we play and that is why he is our number one target over the transfer window.
 
"We've now got Gary for a further 28-days but at the end of the month, he will have a decision to make on his future, whether it will be here or elsewhere.
 
"If he remains surplus to the plans of Stuart Gray at Sheffield Wednesday, we've made it clear that we'd love to have him here past his loan spell and that is something we'd look to do in the coming weeks."
 
Sheffield Wednesday have retained an immediate 24-hour recall option.
