Coventry have made a double swoop for striker Gary Madine and left-back Chris Hussey.

Madine joins on a three-month loan deal from Carlisle having made 10 appearances so far this season, nine of which from the bench, and scoring one goal in a 2-0 Carling Cup victory at Bristol City. The 19-year-old can be recalled after the first month of the agreement has passed.

"Gary is hungry for football and, at the moment, he finds himself behind the four strikers we have at the club," Carlisle manager Greg Abbott told the club's official website.

"That has been frustrating for him so this is a great opportunity to go and work at a club that is at Championship level. He is training with them on Monday and it will be good experience for him."

Hussey, meanwhile, has finally put pen to paper on his switch from AFC Wimbledon and moves to the Ricoh Arena initially on loan with a view to a permanent deal in January.

The 20-year-old, who passed a medical late last week, has a promising reputation and manager Chris Coleman told the club`s official website: "There has been no secret about the fact several clubs were trying to sign Chris so we are delighted he has opted to come to Coventry City."
