It was not a surprise to see Rangers taking the transfer market by a storm this summer. After winning the Scottish Championship with ease last season, it’s time for the Gers to push for the biggest crown in Scottish football i.e. the Premiership and for that the Glasgow side needed quality players. Mark Warburton has managed to bring in an enormous amount of quality to the Rangers side this summer and needs plaudits for doing it in an economic way.
With just a pittance spent in the transfer market, Rangers secured as many as nine signings this summer bolstering the depth and quality both. However, there is still a long time before the transfer windows slams closed and Rangers could still make one or two signings.
A position where the Gers are short on numbers in at the heart of the defence. With just Danny Wilson, Rob Kiernan and new signing veteran Clint Hill, Rangers could be exploited at the back during the length of the season. As per The Scottish Sun, Warburton is looking to re-sign Tottenham Hotspur starlet Dominic Ball on loan for another season.
The 20-year-old returned to White Hart Lane this summer after a brilliant season spent at Ibrox on loan last time out. He will be keen to impress Spurs manager Pochettino during their pre-season in Australia. However, it is highly unlikely that the Spurs academy graduate will be given a major role next season if he stays at the North London club.
Another season on loan away from his parent club could benefit the 20-year-old and there is no better place than Rangers for the youngster. Playing in front of a 50k capacity crowd at Ibrox is something that would help Ball big time with an experience of a lifetime.
Ball, if he stays at white Hart Lane, might be seen as the fourth choice defender after Vertonghen, Alderweireld and Wimmer but his game time would be utterly limited which could stall his progress. Capable of playing as either a centre-back or a defensive midfielder, Ball played a key role for the Gers last campaign in their promotion and might be looking for an opportunity to do the same in the Premiership next season.
