Myles Anderson (born 9 January 1990) is an English professional footballer who plays for Italian club Pro Patria on loan from Monza, as a defender.

Early and personal life[edit]

Born in Westminster, Anderson is the son of football agent, Jerome Anderson.[3]

Career[edit]

Anderson moved from Leyton Orient to Aberdeen in January 2011.[4] He made his professional debut on 19 February 2011, in a Scottish Premier League match against Kilmarnock.[5]

In March 2011, Anderson signed a pre-contract with Blackburn Rovers, effective from 1 July 2011.[3][6] Given the club's links with Anderson's father, Blackburn Rovers manager Steve Kean publicly defended the transfer.[7]

He joined Aldershot Town on loan in August 2012.[8]

On 4 January 2013, Anderson left Blackburn after having his contract terminated by mutual consent, leaving the club without having made a first-team appearance.[9] He signed for Exeter City three days later.[10][11]

On 20 August 2013, Anderson signed for Italian club Monza.[12]
