Reading complete deal for Antonio

Reading

Reading have signed 18-year-old forward Michail Antonio from Ryman Premier League club Tooting & Mitcham United.

Antonio, who joins the Championship side for an undisclosed fee, has signed a contract that will keep him at the Madejski Stadium until 2010.

Reading director football Nicky Hammond said: "Michail has never really had any professional involvement with a club.

"We are hoping that working with him on a day-to-day basis will help him quickly improve as a footballer."

Antonio caught the attention of Reading after scoring four goals in six games for Tooting this season.

He was then brought in on trial and impressed after playing for half an hour of the reserves' 4-0 win against Brighton earlier this month.
