Salford City confirmed three signings on transfer deadline day, bringing in Leicester City youngster Sam Hughes, Sunderland centre-back Jack Baldwin and Luton Town striker Jake Jervis all on season-long loan deals.
In what has been a busy summer transfer window at the Peninsula Stadium since their promotion to the Football League, Salford City have brought in a number of new players and added another three on transfer deadline day.
The first to make the move to the club was defender Sam Hughes, who heads to the club on loan for the duration of the 2019/20 campaign as he looks to gather more first-team experience away from Leicester City. Hughes, who can play in midfield as well as defence, impressed in his time with Chester before joining the Foxes in 2017 and having impressed for the club’s Under-23s he is looking forward to continuing his development with Graham Alexander’s side.
The next to be confirmed was centre-back Jack Baldwin, also joining on loan for the season from Sunderland. Baldwin was heavily involved in Jack Ross’ side last season, making 41 appearances for the Black Cats across all competitions as they missed out on promotion back to the Championship. However, this season, the 26-year-old has made just one appearance, coming in the EFL Cup. He has made the bench just once in League One so far.
Striker Jake Jervis was the last to be confirmed, coming in from Championship side Luton Town. The 27-year-old has plenty of experience under his belt having played for a number of clubs and with game time at Kenilworth Road limited, he has opted to move away on loan. He has played 132 League Two games over the course of his career, scoring 32 and providing 17 assists along the way.
