The versatile 22-year-old spent most of last season at Pittodrie on loan from Rotherham and his parent club have again allowed the player to move north.

Ball can play at centre-half, right-back and in a holding midfield role. Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes told the club’s website: “I’m delighted to welcome Dom back. He showed exactly what he is capable of in the latter part of the league campaign when he played a vital role in our post-split games during which we were undefeated.”
