Scouts impressed by Arsenal defender Daniel Ballard at Blackpool

Arsenal defender Daniel Ballard is attracting growing interest during his loan at Blackpool.

Jeorge Bird Arsenal youth reports the centre-back has caught the eye in League One with Blackpool this campaign, and scored in the 1-1 draw with Crewe Alexandra last night.

This season Ballard has made 13 appearances for Blackpool having endured more fortune on the injury front after his spell at Swindon Town in League Two last season was ended early due to injury.

A temporary switch to a Championship club appears the natural next step for the 21-year-old, who possesses impressive leadership qualities. Arsenal have been monitoring Ballard's progress closely this season and are pleased with his development.
