The former Tottenham Hotspur youngster had a spell at Peterborough United before spending the past two seasons on loan at Aberdeen in the Scottish Premiership.
The Press and Journal claim Aberdeen have made their intentions to sign him permanently known, however Ball is said to want to find a new club in England with Ipswich and Doncaster Rovers cited as suitors.
Ipswich boss Paul Lambert will be looking to bolster his squad this summer following the Suffolk club’s relegation to League One.
While there seems greater emphasis on adding goals to the team this summer, Ipswich will need to make defensive signings after James Collins departed at the end of last season.
Ipswich captain Luke Chambers also turns 34 in September, therefore the Tractor Boys would be wise to look at potential long-term replacements and Ball could fit the bill.
The 23-year-old made over 50 appearances for Aberdeen over two loan spells, showing progression. It seems surprising Rotherham aren’t willing to give him a chance in League One, but their loss could be Ipswich’s gain.
