Rangers are interested in signing Dominic Ball from Tottenham Hotspur in the summer transfer window, according to The Daily Express.

It has been reported by the British newspaper that the newly-promoted Scottish Premiership outfit are in talks with Premier League side Tottenham over a deal for Ball.

The 20-year-old, who can play as a defender or as a defensive midfielder, played on loan for Rangers during the 2015-16 season.

Ball did quite a good job at Ibrox and was a key player in Mark Warburton’s successful quest to get automatic promotion from the Scottish Championship.

“The Light Blues have opened discussions with Tottenham to land Ball again, and would be willing to take him on loan or sign him on a permanent basis,” states the report in The Daily Express.

Good move for Dominic Ball?

Ball is a talented young player, but he is unlikely to get much playing time for the Tottenham first team next season due to the competition for places.

It would be best for the England Under-20 defender if he returns to Rangers on a season-long loan deal.

Playing in the Scottish Premiership would make Ball a better player, and Spurs would be in a better position to make a decision on his long-term future next summer.
