Lennon bemoans January transfer window

Hibernian head coach Neil Lennon says the January transfer window "is torture" for clubs.

The Easter Road side have recruited goalkeeper Scott Bain, striker Jamie MacLaren and full-back Faycal Rherras, all on loan, so far this month.

Lennon has also been linked with a move for forward Florian Kamberi, with the Swiss on trial.

"It would be good to have some more bodies in just to help us along," said Lennon.

"It would be nice but it's not always possible. "If we have to go with the squad that we have now to the end of the season, fine.

'Speculation, rumour, innuendo'

"Torture, the whole month is torture.

"Speculation, rumour, innuendo, deals you think are going to get done, deals you don't think are going to get done.

"The last week is pretty frantic and I'm sure between the final whistle tomorrow [after Hibs face Celtic on Saturday] and Wednesday, which we have another game on Wednesday to contend with [Motherwell at Easter Road], there will be a lot of speculation and to-ing and fro-ing."

Meanwhile, Lennon says midfielder Danny Swanson may leave Easter Road.

Swanson, 31, has made 11 appearances so far this season, having joined Hibs from St Johnstone in the summer.

And he has been linked with a return to Perth.

"We brought him in to come and play," Lennon said of Swanson. "He has not contributed anywhere near enough due to unforeseen circumstances, but he wants to make his mark here.

"There is an opportunity for him to go and play elsewhere and that's down to Danny and we won't force it."
