Two ankle injuries affected Etienne's first season at the club. After a bright start, he was laid low for the best part of two months after the first injury against Arsenal on September 1 and the second injury suffered at Norwich in February ended his season.
The French international made 18 appearances in total in 2013-14, starting eight times in the Premier League and scoring once.
Etienne joined Toulouse in 2005 and went on to play 174 times for them, scoring 13 goals in Ligue 1. He was named in the league's Team of the Year in 2012, alongside Hugo Lloris.
The powerful defensive midfielder, who can also be employed at centre-half, represented his country at Under-18, 19 and 21 levels.
