The Iron can confirm they agreed a deal to bring former Derby County defender Miles Addison to the club on loan.Everything will go through on Friday, August 8 before our season opener away at Swindon Town.
Addison, who is currently parented to Championship outfit Bournemouth, arrives at the club on an initial one-month loan spell.
The 25-year-old has spent the majority of his career thus far at Derby County.
Born in Newham, London, the 6ft 2in defender moved to Nottingham at the age of three - later being spotted by scouts from the Rams’ youth system.
He was handed his first starts at the end of the 2005-06 season, when he would sign a professional contract with the club, in a 1-1 draw with Hull City where he would pair with Lewin Nyatanga.
He would make 51 league starts for the club over a six season spell, with a further 14 appearances coming from the bench. In addition, he netted three goals, with two further strikes coming for the Rams in twelve cup competition appearances.
Towards the end of his stay at Pride Park, he made loan spells to Barnsley and Bournemouth with the latter club agreeing to sign him for an undisclosed fee in July 2012. He has since made 20 league starts for the club, failing to score.
At the end of last season, Addison made a loan switch to Rotherham United, playing six games in total for the Millers.
Although predominantly a central defender, Addison can also play in the centre of midfield and has represented England at Under-21 level for the European Championship Qualification games against Macedonia and Greece, the latter of which saw him earn his first, and only, cap in 2009.
The defender has started training with the Iron already and will provide further cover in defence as David Mirfin is set to miss the start of the season.
