Nottingham Forest manager Mark Warburton is known to be a big fan of Rotherham United’s Dominic Ball.

Dominic Ball has been encouraged to leave Rotherham United by his manager Paul Warne in the Sheffield Star.

Ball has endured a difficult season at Rotherham, after a loan spell at Peterborough United was cut short.

The defender has not played as much football as he was hoping for, and Warne has hinted that Ball could be kept on the substitutes’ bench at Rotherham if he sticks around.

“I asked him what he thought of his season,” Warne said. “He said he thought it was all right. I said I thought it was horrendous. If I had had his season, I would have thought it was a waste of a season really.

“I also said to him, if he wants guaranteed football his future might be elsewhere.”

Ball’s potential availability could give Mark Warburton a chance to reunite with the defender at Nottingham Forest.

Warburton is a huge fan of Ball, and spoke very positively about the 21-year-old’s ability when he had him on loan at Glasgow Rangers.

Ball impressed during his spell at Ibrox, and is still very fondly thought of by Rangers fans.

And, although the youngster has not shown his capabilities over the past year, he remains a very talented player.

With Warburton already proving he can get the best out of Ball, the former Tottenham man could be a good option for Forest.

Forest are thought to be looking to upgrade their defence this summer, and Ball’s arrival would Warburton add to his options at the City Ground next season.
