Don’t get me wrong, Dom Ball isn’t the worst player in the world, but how has he managed a move to QPR? The Loftus Road side have confirmed his arrival.
The ex-Aberdeen loanee was a free agent after leaving Rotherham at the end of last season, following a loan spell at Aberdeen.
Dons boss Derek McInnes was in for the defensive utility man, but Ball reportedly, according to the Scottish Sun, knocked them back. Considering this is the move he’s got in the aftermath of an average Granite City loan spell, you can sort of see why.
Questions have to be asked though how he managed to get this move.
A fantastic move for Ball, not so much for QPR
Ball did his job at Aberdeen. He covered at right-back and defensive midfield, but his primary position is centre-back. He’s been bang average in every single one of them.
He never does anything terribly wrong but he doesn’t do anything brilliantly either.
He’s ok. It’s brilliant for Ball though that he’s managed a move to QPR, that’s probably above his level.
The ex-Don is a League One player, not a Championship player. The fact he’s got a move back to the second tier of English football is a testament to how good of an agent he must have.
Aberdeen fans were hardly losing much sleep over missing out on Ball. They’ll be a few eyebrows raised from the Red Army camp as to how he’s managed to get a move to such an established club.
