Winger Matthew Etherington is released by Stoke City after five-and-a-half years at the Britannia Stadium.

Winger Matthew Etherington has insisted that there are "no hard feelings" after he was released by Stoke City.

The 32-year-old told The Mirror: "I have not played a lot lately. It has been a great time so I am really sad.

"But there are no hard feelings. I think that they are looking to go a different way."
