Wednesday are likely to have to increase their reported £700,000 bid for Michail Antonio if they want to bring the Reading winger to Hillsborough. Antonio, who impressed during a loan spell in last season’s promotion campaign, had a second-half runout against the Owls during our 2-0 win over the Royals in Portugal on Tuesday evening. […]
