READ | Experience will benefit Ball, says Warney

Paul Warne talks to

Rotherham United interim boss Paul Warne believes Dominic Ball’s loan switch to Peterborough United until the end of the 2016/17 season will be hugely beneficial to his development.

Warne is confident that the 21-year-old, who joined from Tottenham Hotspur in the summer, has a bright future with the Millers but is keen to ensure his football education is furthered by getting minutes on the pitch.

The caretaker also added that Ball’s desire to be involved on matchday is a trait he admires greatly, and insists the one-time Rangers loanee goes to London Road with his best wishes.

“I've got a good relationship with Bally and I really like him,” Warne told

“I think he's turning into, and will be, a great player at this club but at the moment his opportunities in the first team are limited.

“I like lads who want to play and I understand that he doesn't want to sit out the squad, he wants to play football every week and so he should.

“He goes to Peterborough with my blessing and they're doing well.”

The stand-in boss finished by explaining that Ball’s temporary switch to the Posh will stand him in good stead on his return to AESSEAL New York Stadium, where he believes he can play a pivotal role next season.

“They're at the top end of the league and the experience will do him good and he'll come back to us pre-season, hopefully having learned a lot and be pushing for a place to be a big part of what we do next season,” Warne added.
