The winger comes off contract in June.
"I am definitely leaving," Etherington told The Sentinel. "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."
