Etherington happy at Stoke
His current contract expires next summer, but not before he completes five years in the Potteries in January.
The winger told The Sentinel: "I've had five great years at Stoke, it's a fantastic football club with great great fans who are so passionate.
"It's some atmosphere when they get behind us, which they do week-in, week-out. They are very passionate fans and love their football club.
"We've had some great times being in Europe and an FA Cup Final - and over-achieved really if we are being honest."
