It has been a difficult year for Etebo as he struggled to break into Stoke side. He joined the Potters in 2018, and became an instant fans favourite, winning the Fans Player of the season.
However, he could not back up the efforts last season as he battled injuries and was frozen out by Michael O’Neil.
With game time hard to come by, Etebo joined Getafe on loan in January, where he impressed. But he missed the final parts of the season with the Spanish Club as he had to bury his late father, which led to Getafe refusing to sign him permanently.
He has since returned to Stoke City, but has missed all of the team’s preseason friendlies, including the win over Newcastle.
His time at the club has now come to an end with the Nigerian set for a new adventure in the Turkish top-flight.
