Etherington announces he's leaving Stoke
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."
