Scunthorpe United will formally sign defender Miles Addison on an initial one-month loan from Championship side Bournemouth on 8 August.
The 25-year-old former Derby County trainee, who is already training with the Iron, made six appearances last season while on loan at Rotherham.
He has played 116 Football League matches in a career which also includes a loan spell with Barnsley.
Addison signed for Bournemouth in 2012 after a loan spell with the club.
He is expected to provide cover in defence for the Iron's David Mirfin, who is set to miss the start of the season with a knee injury.
