Miles Addison has undergone successful surgery on his long-term foot injury.
Addison had this surgery in America on Monday and Nigel Clough is delighted at the success of this, however he knows that it'll be a long road ahead of the England U21 international before he plays for us again.
"We are told the operation has been successful.
Miles will stay out there for another week to allow the surgeons to monitor the early part of his recovery and then he will be returning home.
We are delighted the procedure has gone well but neither Miles or ourselves are in any doubt there is a long road ahead before we see him back in a Derby County shirt."
It's not yet known how long it'll be before Addison does return to the Derby side, he'll not leave America for another week at least and definitely isn't going to feature again this season. No date is being set but there will be no rush to bring him back as the Rams boss isn't prepared to jeopardise his long-term future by rushing things.
"There is no specific time-frame being put on his return. It is important everything is done properly and methodically. Miles is an important asset for this club and has a long career ahead of him.
"It would be foolish to jeopardise his long-term future by being impatient."
Clough was talking to the official website.
Patience is the key here, everyone (the player, management team and fans) has to have this as rushing the defender back could basically end his career and no one wants this.
