AFC Bournemouth have announced the capture of a new loan signing.

With the Club struggling to find fit defenders given the injuries to Adam Barrett, Steven Cook and Stephen Purches, the Cherries have dipped in to the loan market to sign Miles Addison on loan from Derby County for the remainder of the current League season.

The 23-year-old has spent time out on loan at Barnsley earlier in the season.

Addison is quoted on the Clubs Official Web Site as saying: "It is going to be an experience for me and I think it is something I needed to do. There was an offer for me from a team in the Championship in the January transfer window. They were very near Derby and that wouldn’t have taken me out of my comfort zone. So, to come here, I believe I will learn a lot about myself. It is a drop down in terms of divisions but I think this is a Championship club in waiting and want to be a part of a club which is taking steps forward. The manager is very ambitious and that is what I want. I want to be at a club that has ambition".
