Coventry have completed the capture of in-demand striker Cody McDonald from Norwich on a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

The 25-year-old has been linked with a host of clubs this summer, including Peterborough, MK Dons and Sheffield Wednesday, having bagged 25 goals while on loan at Gillingham last season.

But manager Andy Thorn has been given the green light by the cash-strapped Sky Blues to seal his first outfield signing of the summer having seen a raft of departures from the Ricoh Arena.

McDonald, who completed a medical at City's Ryton training ground earlier on transfer deadline day, is thought to have cost in the region of £400,000.

"Cody is an exciting player who has a proven track record. We believe that he is capable of producing at this level and we are delighted to have him on board," Thorn told the club's official website.

"I have been looking at him for a considerable time and he was my number one choice as a recruit so I am delighted we have secured his services."
