The midfielder joined Boro for a five-figure fee from Stockport County last summer, and made a bright start at the Lamex, scoring on his debut against Tranmere and firing a superb free-kick against Norwich in the Carabao Cup.

He fell out of favour with boss Dino Maamria as the season went on, although he did score a brace as a substitute against Crawley in December and make 18 League Two appearance..

Ball, 23, was transfer listed this summer and has now made the permanent move to National League Ebbsfleet.
