Gillingham have completed the signing of Coventry City striker Cody McDonald on a 93-day loan deal.

The 26-year-old, who joined the Sky Blues in August 2011, has scored three goals in 16 appearances this season.

Former Dartford and Norwich City player McDonald had a loan spell at the Priestfield Stadium in 2010-11, bagging 25 goals in 41 league games.

Promotion-chasing League One side Coventry have an option of recalling the forward after one month.

McDonald had been training with Gillingham this week.

"Cody has a fantastic record here at Priestfield," said Gills boss Martin Allen. "He loves this place.

"After meeting him on Sunday morning up north, I was impressed with his attitude and I liked him as a person."
