Whitney Wishes Etheridge 'All the Best' Ahead of Cardiff City Switch

1:51 pm Monday, 5 June 2017
Whitney believes that Etheridge has earned his move up the pyramid, but is still disappointed as the club must now look for a replacement.
Walsall manager Jon Whitney, who recently returned from a short family break, has spoken to the local press and discussed his disappointment at the upcoming departure of first-choice goalkeeper Neil Etheridge, as the 27-year-old stopper prepares to join Cardiff City later this summer.

Jon, who was speaking via the Express & Star, admitted that he would have liked Etheridge to remain at the club, but understands his reasons for leaving, he said; "Of course we are very disappointed to see Neil leave because he is a very good goalkeeper but he deserves his chance to go and play at a higher level.

"I spoke to Neil Warnock about him in January because he wanted to take him there then. We didn’t feel the offer was big enough for us because we were very hopeful of pushing on.

"But they always kept their interest in him and I wish him all the best. Neil has been really good for me. He has been a top professional and he is more than capable of going on and playing in the Championship."
