Matthew Etherington released by Stoke City

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.

Etherington has been associated with the Potters for the past five-and-a-half seasons, but after starting just five times during the last campaign, the midfielder will leave the Britannia Stadium.

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."

Etherington departs Stoke having made 177 appearances for the club.
