Tripod Ball Head with 6cm diameter base - what do you recommend?

I have an old Manfrotto tripod (model 055) which is big and heavy. I want to replace the existing 3 way head with a ball head. Measuring the circular base plate of the tripod that the the ball head would sit on, it is 6cm diameter. There are 3 screws for attaching the ball head to the tripod.

I don't know whether this is a standard sort of fitting these days and wondered if anyone could recommend a ball head, with quick release plate, that would fit on to this tripod.

I'm not looking to spend a fortune on the head though!

Thanks for any suggestions
