It is expected that Etete, who is still recovering from a hamstring injury, will make the move to Cheltenham Town for the rest of the season.

"Just wanted to say a massive thank you to all the staff, players and fans for the belief and support I received from day one," Etete posted on Instagram after his departure was confirmed.

"I will never forget this part of my journey and all the best for the rest of the season @officiallyntfc."
