Club 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, making nine League One appearances without return, until the end of the season. From 5 October 2009, Antonio spent the rest of the season on loan at Southampton FC, making 28 League One appearances, scoring three goals. Signed on loan with Colchester United FC for two months, scored four goals in fifteen League One appearances. Following 28 Championship appearances for Reading, in which he only scored once, on 21 February 2012, Antonio was again loaned out, as an emergency, to Sheffield Wednesday FC, he scored five goals in fourteen League One appearances. Antonio was then signed on a permanent on Wednesday on 6 August 2012. Exactly two years later, after twelve goals in 64 Championship appearances, 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, having made fifty Championship appearances, scoring sixteen goals. Up until 2018-19, he scored 26 goals in 108 Premier League appearances. He missed the end of 2016-17 season following a 'significant' injury.
