Blackpool have signed Gary Madine from Championship rivals Sheffield Wednesday on loan until the end of the season.

The 24-year-old striker could make his debut against Middlesbrough on Tuesday.

Madine recently returned to Wednesday from a loan spell with League One side Coventry, where he made 13 appearances.

"As soon as I got the phone call and I heard Lee Clark was interested, I couldn't say no really to my chance to play in the Championship again," he told the club website.external-link

"I've been out on loan in League One and as every professional footballer will say, you play at the highest level you can."

Former Carlisle United forward Madine has scored 28 goals in 113 games for Sheffield Wednesday since joining the club in 2011.
