League OneCoventry City have re-signed ChampionshipSheffield Wednesday striker Gary Madine on an initial month's loan. The 24 year old, who spent three months on loan with the Sky Blues in 2009, was given an 18-month prison term last October for assaulting two fans in separate Sheffield nightclub incidents.
"We made enquiries about his availability in the summer," said City boss Steven Pressley. "He remained very much in Sheffield Wednesday's plans at the time. But we've always been aware of the quality he has.
"He is a player we've been tracking for some time with a proven goal-scoring record at this level and certainly brings great presence and physicality to the team."
