The Super Eagles midfielder completed a six-month loan move to La Liga side Getafe, but Stoke City fans are not happy with the Potters decision to let Etebo leave.
The former Warri Wolves struggled for game time at the Britannia Stadium this season with him making just 15 appearances for the club.
However, Stoke City fans believe the club should not have let him go as he is one of their best players. Etebo was voted as Stoke City’s fans player of the season last campaign, but he has struggled to replicate the form this season due to injuries. Nevertheless, the club’s fans expressed their anger at seeing the 24-year-old leave for La Liga.
Another loan deal the clubs business sense is piss poor don’t know who evers pulling the strings keeps getting away with it

This is a sickening transfer. Arguably the best player in our entire squad being sent out on loan while the threat of League One hangs over us. Funny how he’s going to a team fighting for a European spot in La Liga… almost like he’s a very good player. #ScholesOut

This is a strange one, seemed to want to put in a shift for the shirt. I fear this is just a necessity due to the FFP rules. 🙈

One of the best players on the pitch in a game that included Di Maria, Higuaín, Messi, Banega….yet not deemed as good as Allen, Woods, Cousins etc by @stokecity . And they can't understand why we face possible relegation from the Championship.
Superb judgement again Stoke 👏👏

Poor decision in my opinion. Like the club are trying to cut back on wages. Quality player allowed to go with so much dross still in the dressing room. 🤐

Etebo joins Getafe on an initial six-month loan deal, but the Azulones have the option of making the move permanent. The Nigeria international will be hoping to make his debut for José Bordalás when they take on Leganes next Friday.
