Dominic Ball has joined Queen’s Park Rangers on a two-year deal.

The The 23-year-old defender, who has spent the last two years on loan at Aberdeen, moves to QPR from Rotherham United after his contract expired.

Ball said: “I’m absolutely delighted. To join a club of QPR’s stature, it’s brilliant to be here.

“I am at the age now where I have played quite a few games and I am ready to really kick-on with my career. There is no better place for me to do that than QPR.”

Ball has worked with QPR boss Mark Warburton before, both at Watford and Rangers, and he is excited to be teaming up with him once again.

Ball said: “He was my academy manager at Watford from the age of 10 to 16 and he took me to Rangers on loan where we had a very successful season.

“The main thing about the gaffer is the type of football he likes to play and the discipline he shows around the training ground.

“He plays stylish football and believes that’s the best way to get results. I believe in that as well which is why I am looking forward to working with him again.”

Warburton said: “I know Dom very well.

“I signed him as a young academy player many years ago. He did very well when he went to Spurs and he did very well for us at Glasgow Rangers.

“He knows how I like the game to be played and he is a really good character on and off the pitch. He will certainly add value to the dressing room.

“He can play in a variety of positions and I think it is important that we have a number of players who can offer us that flexibility in terms of their positioning.”
