Nuneaton Town have signed defender Kevin Malaga from Coventry City on a one-month loan deal.
The 25-year-old centre-half only joined the Sky Blues in the summer after his contract expired at Nice.
"Sometimes when a player comes to a club it doesn't work out initially," Boro boss Kevin Wilkin said.
"Joining Boro will give Kevin the opportunity to play in a tough and competitive league against some real quality players."
Malaga is able to play in Nuneaton's FA Cup first round match against Luton Town on Saturday.
