Manager Ronnie Moore wanted to bolster his midfield options, but failed with bids for both players.
Etherington has just returned to the Spurs first team picture after a lengthy spell out with an ankle injury.
He played for Spurs' reserves on Monday and Moore wanted to take him on loan.
However, Tottenham's director of football David Pleat told him that he was not available.
Moore was also keen on taking Oster, who has just had a very impressive spell at Grimsby.
However, he has just been recalled to the Stadium of Light and is now pressing for a first team place.
