Coventry City have extended Sheffield Wednesday striker Gary Madine’s loan spell until January 30.

The 24-year-old, who has scored three goals in 10 appearances since joining the Sky Blues in October, was set to return to Hillsborough on Sunday.

But the Owls have agreed to let Madine remain with the League One side for a further 28 days. However, Wednesday have retained a 24-hour recall clause in the deal. Madine has scored once in 13 appearances for the Owls this season.

Coventry boss Steven 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.”
