Peterborough United chairman Darragh MacAnthony has revealed that Sheffield Wednesday are in the hunt to sign Jack Baldwin.
In an interview posted on the club’s official YouTube channel, MacAnthony confirmed that he has turned down bids from Sunderland and Sheffield Wednesday for Baldwin and that he is not desperate to sell the defender.
Baldwin joined Posh in 2013 from Hartlepool United and has played over 100 times for the club since.
The 25-year-old, who plays as a centre-half or in defensive midfield, captained Peterborough last year as they fell narrowly short of the play-offs.
But with Posh willing to listen to offers for most of their players, Sunderland and Sheffield Wednesday attempted to lure him away on the cheap.
Baldwin featured highly on Sheffield Wednesday manager Jos Luhukay’s list of targets but they failed with a bid to sign him.
Baldwin would be an excellent addition for Sunderland as he is a proven solid defender at League One level.
He would be more of a risk for the Owls and it might take him a while to make the step up.
But if they snapped him up initially as back-up with a view to breaking into the first-team, it could be a good signing if the price is right.
