Sheffield Wednesday and Sunderland are both keen on Peterborough United’s Jack Baldwin, according to the Yorkshire Post.

The 25-year-old defender has been transfer listed by League One side Peterborough and could leave them this summer for the right price.

Sheffield Wednesday are hoping to get some transfer deals over the line in the next two weeks and are plotting some defensive reinforcements. The Owls are aiming to do better this season in the Championship to what they did in the last campaign so want to tighten up their back line.

Their manager, Jos Luhukay, is eyeing up a move for Jack Baldwin to add some more options/back-up to his defence.

The Owls will have to face competition from League One side Sunderland for his signature though. The Black Cats are aiming for an immediate promotion back to the Championship next season and want someone with League One experience, like Baldwin, to strengthen their side.

Sunderland have been busy so far in this transfer window and have snapped up the likes of Dylan McGeouch from Hibernian, Tom Flanagan from Burton Albion, Reece James from Wigan Athletic and JOn McLaughlin from Hearts. Jack Baldwin is next on their radar.

Baldwin, who is 6ft 1inc, joined Peterborough in January 2014 for a fee of around £500,000 from Hartlepool United. He has since played over 100 games for the Posh but could be leaving them this summer. Two big clubs in Sheffield Wednesday and Sunderland have him on their radar so Baldwin could be set for a decent move.
