Rangers loan star Dominic Ball open to Ibrox return

RangersDominic Ball is on loan from Tottenham Hotspur.

Rangers loan star Dominic Ball says he will be open to a return to Ibrox this summer though he admits his future depends on what parent club Tottenham Hotspur have in mind, Sky Sports report.

The 20-year-old joined Gers on a season-long loan deal last summer and has so far enjoyed a terrific campaign at Ibrox, landing the first division title on Tuesday following a 1-0 win over Dumbarton.

The experience of playing in-front of 50,000 supporters will stand him in good stead for the future, and Ball admits he would be open to returning to Rangers for next season in order to further his development.

“Playing in front of 50,000 is what I wanted to do since I was young and every week I play out there. It was brilliant last night," Ball explained to Sky Sports.

"I will have to wait and see what the options are and what Spurs want. But I have loved my time here, the lads, the manager, so I would definitely be open to coming back next year but it is down to Spurs."

The talented defender came through the Tottenham youth academy and enjoyed a loan spell at Cambridge United last season before opting to join Rangers last summer.

Ball, an England Under 20 international, has made 18 Scottish first division appearances this season.

With Tottenham currently flying high in the Premier League and expected to strengthen further this summer, Ball may see his playing opportunities limited upon his return to White Hart Lane.

Another loan spell away from North London would be best for his development, and returning to Glasgow would make sense as Rangers prepare for life back in the Scottish Premiership.
