HARTLEPOOL United did not want to lose Jack Baldwin – but when he insisted he wanted to move to Peterborough they made sure they got the best deal for the club.

That was the message from boss Colin Cooper following Baldwin’s £500,000 transfer deadline night move to Posh

“We didn’t want to sell Jack but when the approach was made by Peterborough earlier this week he made it clear that it was an opportunity he was interested in,” Cooper told the club’s website.

“We have spent time trying to encourage him to stay but once his mind was made up to progress his career in League One, our job was to get the best possible deal for Hartlepool United.”
