Nottingham Forest have bolstered their attacking options ahead of the new Championship campaign by signing winger Michail Antonio from Sheffield Wednesday.

The 24-year-old has put pen to paper on a three-year contract at the City Ground and will go straight into Stuart Pearce's squad for Saturday's home match against Blackpool.

The Londoner was a trainee with Reading and had loan spells with Cheltenham, Southampton and Colchester before switching to the Owls, where he scored 18 goals in 80 games, including four Championship strikes last term.

Antonio said on Twitter: "Thanks to all the fans at swfc who have been brilliant with me, I wish you every success in the future."
