Shrewsbury Town reportedly keen on striker David Ball

According to reports, Shrewsbury Town are weighing up David Ball as an option to add to their ranks.

The 29-year-old is available on a free transfer after leaving relegated Rotherham United recently.

Sam Ricketts is believed to be targeting a striker, following the expiration of Tyrese Campbell’s loan.

Lee Angol, who spent the second half of the campaign on loan at Lincoln City, is likely to be on his way out.

There are also doubts over the future of Aaron Amadi-Holloway, as he found the net just three times in 22 appearances last campaign.

Town are not the only side with an interest in Ball – who has Championship and League One experience as well as three promotions on his CV.

The Whitefield born forward began his career at Manchester City, and was part of the team that won the 2008 FA Youth Cup.

He was also named the joint second top goalscorer in the 2009/10 reserve Premier League; but was unable to make a first team appearance for City.

Following a loan spell at Swindon Town, Ball moved to Peterborough United. He was part of the side that earned promotion to the Championship – and struck 11 goals in 45 games.

His five-year spell at Fleetwood yielded 49 goals in 209 games, whilst he was part of the Cod Army team that were promoted to League One in 2014.

Ball spent this season on loan at Bradford City, and will be remembered by Town fans for scoring a 96th minute winner in a 4-3 defeat.
