Last we heard, Derek Hough was “probably” going to return for Dancing With the Stars Season 14. But in this new Las Vegas Sun story, writer Robin Leach says the three-time champ is coming back this spring.

According to Mr. Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, Derek confirmed to him at the Martial Arts Awards in Las Vegas earlier this week that he has already signed on for Season 14.

“Pro champion Derek, who presented Submission of the Year, told me he’s signed on for the next season of DWTS that starts in March,” Robin wrote. “He said that he was injured for the first time this season with a dislocated shoulder. ‘I still feel that,’ he admitted.”

So, even with a dislocated shoulder, Derek is returning to the ballroom. That’s dedication!

DWTS Season 14 is scheduled to premiere on March 19, 2012. Cheryl Burke already said she was planning to return too. Who else? Tell us pros!
