Details unknownPrevious Club:
Matthew Etherington was one of Glenn Roeder's first signings following relegation from the Premiership, moving from Tottenham as part of the deal which took Freddie Kanoute the other way for an estimated ?1m.
The Truro-born winger had spent four frustrating years at White Hart Lane - for whom he made just 24 competitive starts - before becoming a vital part of firstly Roeder's, then Trevor Brooking's, then Alan Pardew's team - all in the space of three months!
A good old-fashioned winger who can also be a real crowd pleaser, Etherington is determined to make his grade in the Premiership after suffering a miserable time at Tottenham.
