Addison moves to Rotherham on loan

Former AFC Bournemouth captain Miles Addison has moved to League One side Rotherham United on loan.

Addison makes the move to Steve Evans side for the remainder of the season after failing to break into the Cherries starting line up.

Miles Addison was initially signed in February 2012 by former manager Lee Bradbury.

He made 14 appearances for the club and became a popular addition to the Cherries squad during the end of season run-in with a string of good performances whilst on loan alongside central defensive partner Steve Cook.

Following the end of his loan spell, Addison returned to Derby County where he still had one year remaining on his current contract.

However then Derby County manager Nigel Clough had stated that Addison would be likely to leave the club over the summer.

The Cherries faced competition to sign him from a couple of Championship clubs, but he eventually decided to re-join AFC Bournemouth on a three year contract in July 2012 under former manager Paul Groves.

He started last season as AFC Bournemouth captain and made 22 appearances before struggling with injury.

His final appearance for AFC Bournemouth came in November 2012.

He re-joined the first team squad after returning to fitness at the start of this season but couldn't add to his nine appearances for Eddie Howe.

AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe told the Daily Echo...

"Miles expressed a wish to play this season. At this stage of his career, and with the injuries he had prior to coming here and while he has been here, he didn`t want to spend any more time on the fringes of the squad.

"When someone makes that request to you, it is only right that you listen. You do what is best for the club but you also have to think of the player and his future.

"He made the decision that when the window had reopened, we would look at his situation. He wants to play and has gone to a good club who are doing well. It is an opportunity for him to get regular football which I think is what he needs.
