New Stoke deal for Etherington

21 July 2010 07:12
Winger Matthew Etherington has signed a new four-year deal with Stoke City. Etherington had been in talks with the Potters throughout the summer and has now put pen to paper on a new long-term deal. The 28-year-old former Tottenham and West Ham man has made 51 appearances during two seasons with the club. "It's been a fantastic couple of years for me here, so I was more than happy to sign a new contract. It's taken time to sort out, but these things do," he told the club's official website. "I am confident that we can go on to bigger and better things and I want to play my part by improving upon what I achieved last season. "The gaffer has been brilliant, there's a great bunch of lads in the dressing room and it's been fantastic playing in front of a packed Britannia Stadium, so there was never any doubt in my mind that I wanted to secure my future at this club."
