The striker's loan stay with the Sky Blues has been converted to a three-and-a-half-year deal, as per the terms of his departure at the end of August.

The 21-year-old has scored five goals in 21 appearances since moving to the Ricoh Arena in a £500,000 agreement.

Chaplin didn't feature against Kenny Jackett's men in his side's 1-0 win in October as part of the deal, despite Coventry boss Mark Robins suggesting he could feature.
