NEIL Lennon admits the future of Wanderers loanees Wellington Silva and Prince-Desire Gouano is uncertain but hopes to have them on board beyond January.

The transfer window opens belatedly tomorrow and clubs are able to do business until 11pm on Monday, February 1.

And ahead of this weekend's home Championship clash with Huddersfield Town, the Whites boss conceded financial concerns off the pitch could prompt a rethink over the loan duo this month with Wanderers looking to cut costs – probably through player departures.

The Northern Irishman wants to keep the pair for the season-long deals agreed with Arsenal for Wellington and Italian outfit Atalanta for Prince last summer.

However, he will consult with financial advisor to the board Trevor Birch on the way forward with the cash-strapped club still up for sale and facing a winding-up order from HMRC.

Lennon told The Bolton News: "We have not really touched on Wellington's future yet.

"We are hoping we will be able to manage him for the rest of the season but that’s something I need to speak to Trevor about.

"Prince is the same – he’s on loan from Atalanta.

"They are year-long loans and hopefully the clubs will want us to honour that.

"Trevor may have to speak to those clubs about it with our financial situation.

"We hope we can keep them both here because they have been important to us and will be going forward."

Defender Prince returned to the side in Monday's 1-0 derby win against Blackburn, while Wellington returned off the bench at Rotherham on Boxing Day after a lengthy spell sidelined with a hamstring injury.

The young Brazilian winger may be in reserve again tomorrow but Lennon hopes to have his services available until May when he does regain a starting place.

The Whites boss added: "Wellington had half an hour last Saturday and just the way the game was going on Monday, we didn’t want to upset the balance with having to defend a little bit.

"He will certainly come into the thinking again for the games coming up and he will be itching to play.

"He is a good type. I think he maybe needs to get a little bit fitter at times and work on that side of his game.

"But there is no question of his talent.

"Once he’s up and running, I am sure he will feature if he stays with us."
