Derby have confirmed that Miles Addison has committed his future to the club by signing a new two-year deal.
Skysports.com revealed earlier this week that the versatile 22-year-old had agreed a contract extension at Pride Park and the Rams have now announced that he has put pen to paper.
Addison, who can play in defence or midfield, has spent his entire senior career with Derby and is now tied to the club until the summer of 2013.
He has struggled with a serious foot injury over the past couple of years but returned to action towards the end of last season and chief executive Tom Glick is delighted to secure his services.
"Miles has shown great character in the last few seasons to recover from his foot injury," Glick told Derby's official website.
"Prior to that he was a player recognised with great potential and had just been capped by England Under 21s.
"We have extended Miles' contract because we believe as he gets his match fitness back he will again show that he can be a force in this division, and even higher."
