Hartlepool United manager Paul Murray would like to keep Charlie Wyke and Scott Harrison at the club beyond their existing loan spells.
Middlesbrough forward Wyke and Sunderland defender Harrison, both 21, return to their parent clubs after Saturday's game against York City.
Wyke has scored four goals in 14 games, while Harrison has played 13 matches during his stay at Pools.
"I'd like them to come back," Murray told BBC Tees.
"They're going back to their parent clubs at the minute, we're in discussions about what's going to happen on their futures.
"Whether they're with us or not, we'll be discussing it."
Murray, who took over at Pools in October, has already brought in free agents Nicky Featherstone, Sidney Schmeltz and also signed Dunston's Scott Fenwick, but is keen to add further bodies to the squad.
"They're ticking over, but we've still not got them in yet," he added.
"We're looking at all options. You never know, something might crop up."
