Etuhu, 28, has started all four of the club's games this season and scored in a 2-2 draw at Blackpool on August 28.

His partnership with Danny Murphy in central midfield has been a prominent factor in the club's success of late and looks set to continue under Mark Hughes.

Etuhu - who started his career as a trainee at Manchester City - joined the Cottagers from Sunderland in August 2008 for a fee of £1.5 million.

The midfielder represented Nigeria at the World Cup finals as the country failed to make it out of the group stages in South Africa.
