Baldwin has joined Salford City on loan until the end of the season

The ambitious League Two side have moved to bring in the 26-year-old after he fell out of favour under Jack Ross.

The arrival of Joel Lynch meant that Baldwin was sixth choice centre-back, and though Ross was happy for him to stay and fight for his place, he insisted that he would not stand in his way should he wish to push for more regular football.

Baldwin has made one competitive appearance so far this season, in the 3-1 win Carabao Cup over Burnley last week.

Ross said his performance was ‘terrific’.
