Former Pools defender Jack Baldwin is interesting Scottish Premiership side Dundee after Peterborough made their skipper available for transfer.

The Posh are understood to be wanting more than £200,000 for the 24-year-old, who has just one year left on his contract, as they look to recoup some of the £500,000 they spent to land him from Victoria Park back in 2014.

And Baldwin’s performances in League One have caught the eye of former Scotland international Neil McCann, who is in the dugout at Dens Park.

According to the Scottish Sun McCann has already had one offer rejected for the centre half as it fell way short of Posh’s valuation.

They report Peterborough, who banked £200,000 from the sale of Chris Forrester to Aberdeen last week, won’t sell on the cheap and are likely to demand a similar fee for the defender.

Former Sunderland managerial target Derek McInnes is also said to be keen to take Baldwin north of the border to Aberdeen.

It is not yet known whether Pools would receive any percentage of a potential transfer fee.
