Addison has only played 38 games during the past two seasons
Miles Addison is still very much part of Derby County's plans despite his loan move to Barnsley, says chief executive Tom Glick.
The defender, 22,
joined the Tykes on a six-month deal
to gain much-needed game time after an injury-plagued two years.
But Glick told BBC Radio Derby the fact
Addison has just signed a new deal at Pride Park
shows the club's commitment.
"Miles is a Derby player. We believe he will be a great player for us and this is about developing him," he said.
"Putting Miles out on loan so he can start every game was a good option for Miles' development."
The England Under-21 international signed an extended deal in late June which keeps him at Pride Park until the summer of 2013.
