Addison Seals Bournemouth Move
Miles Addison has made the move south to join Bournemouth after agreeing a three year contract and has joined the League One side for an undisclosed fee.
The academy product spent time at Dean Court on loan last season making fourteen appearances for the south coast club and has made the decision to make the move permanent after Nigel Clough went on record saying that the defender would not be in his plans for the new season.
Having made his Derby County début at the age of seventeen in 2006 big things were expected of the youngster and he went on to make 77 appearances for The Rams but he was never the same player after a foot injury saw him miss large parts of the 2008/9 and 2009/10 seasons. Addison spent time out on loan and both Barnsley and Bournemouth last season but despite having signed a contract extension twelve months ago it was clear he did not have a future at Pride Park. Talking to the official Bournemouth website about the move Addison said:
'People may say it's a gamble but I don't want to just survive in the Championship. I'd rather drop down a division to a club that is going to try to win the title. The expectation in the town is massive.'
