Sheffield Wednesday signed Michail Antonio from Premiership side Reading for an undisclosed fee in August 2012.
Antonio put pen to paper on a four-year contract at Hillsborough.
The capture of the 22-year-old follows the winger’s major impact for the Owls in 2011/12 on loan as Dave Jones’ side stormed to automatic promotion to the Championship.
The pacey wideman kicked off his career with the Royals in 2008 as a trainee and enjoyed loan spells with Cheltenham, Southampton, Colchester and the Owls.
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 Madejski outfit in 2010/11.
Antonio was then loaned to Colchester and made 15 appearances, scoring four goals.
He joined Wednesday on a temporary deal in January 2012 and played 14 games, scoring five times as the Owls sealed second spot in League 1.
Antonio made a big impact in the Owls' first season back in the Championship, scoring nine goals, although the forward's season was cut short in March through injury.
The ex-Reading man regained his fitness in time for the start of the 2013/14 and featured on the opening day against QPR.
