“I am absolutely buzzing. I came in here last year, had a really good season, and this is where I want to be.

“I had to prove a point last season and that’s exactly what I need to do again this year. The style of football, the staff, the players, it all suits me and I enjoy going out on the pitch as a QPR player which is really important.”

Overall, Ball featured in 35 games across all competitions last season, scoring one goal and laying on two assists in the process. He featured heavily in defensive midfield, also filling in at centre-back if needs be. Ball started in all of Rangers’ Championship games from February 1st onwards, nailing down a spot in the starting 11.
