Wednesday striker Gary Madine is being linked with a loan move to League One side Doncaster Rovers.

Owls boss Dave Jones has been trying to get the former Carlisle United forward a temporary move away from Hillsborough but Madine has so far turned down the approaches of clubs understood to include Swindon Town.

But with the arrivals of Leroy Lita and Connor Wickham to Hillsborough on loan deals, Madine has dropped way down the pecking order at Wednesday and could benefit from playing regular football elsewhere.

The Sheffield Telegraph is reporting that Rovers are targeting two new additions before next Monday’s league trip to Crawley and Madine is understood to be one of those targets.

Madine has struggled to make an impact in the Championship, scoring just three goals all season from 28 appearances in all competitions.
