Playing Career


Club(s):
Began his youth football with Tooting & Mitcham United juniors FC at the age of twelve. He joined the parent club as a seventeen year old. After 45 league matches and 33 goals, on 28 October 2008, Antonio signed with Reading FC for an undisclosed fee. Returned to Tooting on loan on 9 January 2009, and scored another seven goals in nine Isthmian League appearances before being recalled. On 19 February, he was sent out on loan to Cheltenham Town FC until the end of the season. After returning to Reading, Antonio then spent the rest of the season, from 5 October 2009, on loan at Southampton FC. Signed on loan with Colchester United FC for two months on 15 August 2011. On 21 February 2012, Antonio was again loaned out, as an emergency, to Sheffield Wednesday FC, followed by a permanent transfer on 6 August 2012. Exactly two years later, on 6 August 2014, he signed with Nottingham Forest FC for £1½ million. The following summer, Antonio was subject to bids from West Bromwich Albion FC and Derby County FC, but it was West Ham United FC, on 1 September 2015, who won the bid, offering £7 million and Matt Jarvis in a season long loan deal in return. He missed the end of 2016-17 season following a 'significant' injury.
