Miles Addison came through the youth system at Derby County and became a regular in the first team and won an international cap for England Under 21's.

Addison made his England appearance in September 2009 against Greece, the season after he was voted young player of the year at Derby after making 36 appearances during that season, following in the footsteps of former Derby trainee Tom Huddlestone. He was beginning to be looked at as a hot prospect for the future with Premier League side Stoke linked with a £2million move for the versatile defender/midfielder, but he missed the final three months of the 2008/09 season.

He returned in time for the start of the next campaign, but after 16 appearances the FA Cup appearance in January 2010 was his last for ten months following an operation in America which saved his career.

After surgeons in the United Kingdom refused to treat him, Addison travelled to San Francisco for a procedure to fix a double fracture in his navicular bone in his right foot, which had also lost its blood supply.

British surgeons had feared that with no blood supply, screwing the bone would make it disintegrate, however the specialist in America completed a successful operation and Addison returned to action making 21 Championship appearances during the second half of the 2010/11 season.

Vital Derby editor MikeC believes that Addison 'was never the same player after a foot injury' and he spent the first half of last season on loan with Championship side Barnsley before joining the Cherries on loan towards the end of the campaign.

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 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.

He lost his place and captaincy shortly after Eddie Howe's return to the club as manager and Addison's final appearance for AFC Bournemouth came in November 2012 after he struggled with injury.

Addison moved to League One side Rotherham United on loan in January 2014, but made just six appearances in Rotherham's play-off push, including just four starts.

He starting the following season on loan with Scunthorpe.

In March 2015 he joined Blackpool, making 5 appearances before he was released by AFC Bournemouth in May 2015.
