The 21-year-old has recently returned to Highfield Road after over three months with Luton Town where he scored ten goals in 19 appearances.
Luton's Second Division rivals Peterborough launched a swift bid to prise McSheffrey away from The Sky Blues but have failed in their efforts.
Posh also enquired about the availability of Dele Adebola but Coventry's stand-in manager Eric Black admits he can not afford to lose any forwards at present.
"Barry Fry approached me about taking Gary on loan at Peterborough and there have been several clubs who have phoned me over the last few days looking at his situation," said Black.
"But at present I just feel that we need him here.
"Peterborough also asked about Dele Adebola but again at this moment in time we need him here.
"I went to have a close look at Gary in the reserves on Monday night and he looks lively but whether he comes back into the squad remains to be seen."
