Antonio close to Royals exit
Reading winger Michail Antonio is edging closer to a move away from the Madejski Stadium, with Sheffield Wednesday his destination.
It has been widely reported that the newly-promoted Championship side have agreed a fee with Reading's director of football Nicky Hammond, with Antonio just needing to complete personal terms and a medical. The fee is likely to remain undisclosed, but is expected to be just short of a seven-figure fee, after already rejecting a £700k bid last month.
The 22-year old was not involved in Saturday's friendly at Bournemouth, attempting to finalise this move to Hillsborough. The former Tooting & Mitcham player failed to nail down a starting place under Brian McDermott, while he made a superb impact on loan with Dave Jones' side in the tail end of last season, helping them to promotion to the Championship.
