Rory Donnelly

Coventry City have signed Swansea striker Rory Donnelly on loan for the rest of the season.

The 21-year-old Northern Irishman will help plug the gap left by the £750,000 sale of top scorer Leon Clarke to League One rivals Wolves.

Donnelly's arrival follows the loan signings of fellow striker Nathan Delfouneso from Aston Villa and midfielder Dylan McGeouch from Celtic.

All three are in line for their City debuts against Walsall on Saturday.

Donnelly, once a target for both Everton and Liverpool, has made two appearances for Swansea since arriving from Belfast side Cliftonville,in January 2012.

Meanwhile, Coventry boss Steven Pressley failed in an attempt to sign Huddersfield Town striker Jon Stead.
