Sheffield Wednesday striker Gary Madine has been jailed for 18 months after being found guilty of assault.

The sentence was handed down to the 23-year-old at Leeds Crown Court today after he was hit with the guilty verdict last month.

Madine was convicted of one charge of actual bodily harm and a charge of grievous bodily harm for punching two men in separate nightclub attacks last year.

The forward was initially granted bail, but was informed that a custodial sentence was likely.
