Ipswich Town have been linked with former Rotherham defender Dominic Ball.
The 23-year-old, who is a free agent after departing the Millers at the end of the season, has spent the last two seasons on loan at Aberdeen, but turned down a contract offer.
The Press and Journal report that, while the Dons are still keen to sign the Spurs academy product, he's told boss Derek McInnes that he'd prefer a move back to England.
Town and fellow League One contenders Doncaster are said to be interested.
You may also want to watch:
The Blues, of course, signed striker James Norwood from Tranmere on Monday, having already inked giant Czech stopper Tomas Holy earlier in the off-season.
And a move for a central defender is likely, given that skipper Luke Chambers and Toto Nsiala are currently the club's only senior players in that position - with the returning Luke Woolfenden and youngster Corrie Ndaba hoping to make a push for playing time this summer.
Ball, who made 31 starts and nine sub appearances for Aberdeen last season, can also play as a full-back or defensive midfielder.
Another rumour doing the rounds is the Daily Mirror linking midfield star Alan Judge with a move to QPR. However, we understand that there has been no contact between the clubs and Judge is happy at Portman Road.
