Dominic Ball has sent a Twitter message to Tottenham to thank them for their role in his development after he left the club on Friday.

Ball, 21, has joined Rotherham after signing a three-year contract.

Rotherham revealed on their official website and Twitter account on Friday that the 21-year-old, who can play in midfield or defence, has joined the Championship club for an undisclosed fee.

Ball posted a heartfelt goodbye message to the club on Twitter in which he thanked the club he joined as a 16-year-old and said it had been “a pleasure to play and work alongside the staff and players”.

Spurs then passed a message on their official Twitter account wishing the youngster all the best in the future.

Ball has followed the trail blazed by Spurs mainstay Dier by moving forward from his more recognised central defensive role into a midfield anchorman position.

It is a switch that paid dividends for Rangers last season as the centre-back-turned-defensive midfielder played a significant part in their Scottish Championship title triumph and progress to the Scottish Cup final.

The youngster will end his time with Tottenham having never played a first-team game, but has featured 28 times for the Under-21 team, scoring one goal and receiving one red card.

In other Tottenham transfer news, Marseille striker Georges-Kévin N’Koudou has arrived in London to complete his protracted transfer to the club.
