SHEFFIELD Wednesday and Reading have confirmed a loan move to Hillsborough for winger Michail Antonio.

The deal will run until the end of the season.

The Owls’ interest in the 21-year-old first emerged in November after he finished a loan spell at Colchester.

He kicked off his career with Reading in 2008 as a trainee and has since had loan spells with Cheltenham, Southampton as well as the U’s.

He scored for the Saints in their JPT final triumph of 2010 against Carlisle and made 39 appearances for the South Coast side in all competitions, claiming seven goals.

After returning to Reading, Antonio featured on 24 occasions for the Championship club last season.

He was loaned to Colchester last August and made 15 appearances, scoring four goals.

Antonio has made a total of 97 senior appearances in his career and could make his debut against Sheffield United on Sunday.
