Addison Agrees Tykes Deal

Addison Agrees Tykes Deal

Miles Addison has agreed a deal to that will see him join Barnsley on a six month loan deal expiring at the end of December in order to help regain some fitness and get more first team games under his belt. After returning from a long term foot injury last season Addison made eleven starts with a further eleven appearances from the bench but manager Nigel Clough sees the loan deal as an ideal opportunity for the youngster to gain more playing time as this is not something he can guarantee the player once the new season gets underway. Having recently signed a new contract that will keep him at Pride Park until the summer of 2013 Clough is quick to point out the loan deal is not an indication that Addison is not part of his future plans telling

'Miles was in and out of the team in the second half of last season and Barnsley can give him the first team football that we can't right now. He had an awful long time out of action, especially when you also consider the time he spent playing with the injury prior to the operation. He has gone to Barnsley to play games, but part of the loan was that he agreed to extend his contract here and we are delighted with that. He needs to play games more than anything right now and Barnsley will give him that chance to play 23 games and get his sharpness and match fitness up.'
