MICHAIL Antonio looks set to join Wednesday within the next few days after agreeing terms with the club.
Manager Dave Jones confirmed after today’s 1-1 draw with West Brom at Hillsborough that completion of a deal is close.
“We’ve agreed a fee with the club (Reading) and we’ve agreed personal terms,” he said. “It will just be down to other bits and bobs now.”
When he was asked if he was confident the transfer would go through, he said: “I’d be disappointed if it didn’t go through. We’ve spent a lot of time on it.”
Jones hopes that Antonio will join the club on next week’s trip to Scotland and play some part in the friendly at Kilmarnock on Wednesday.
