Stoke winger confirms summer departure

Stoke City winger Matthew Etherington has reiterated that he will be leaving the Potters at the end of the season, as reported by Sky Sports.

Etherington has failed to break into the side under Mark Hughes and so will not be offered a new deal when his contract expires at the end of the season.

The former West Ham winger is hoping to stay in the Premier League with a new club but is taking nothing for granted after a tough few months at Stoke.

Etherington is now 32 years old and he knows that he may not have many more years left at the top, so will put a lot of thought into his next move.

“I am definitely leaving,” said Etherington in the Sunday Mirror.

“I have not heard anything from the club, which is fair enough, I have not played a lot lately.

“I will have been there five years in the January just passed and it has been a great time so I am really sad it is coming to an end.

“But there are no hard feelings. I think they are looking to go a different way, which is absolutely fine.”
