Lee Bowyer is not expecting George Lapslie or Erhun Oztumer to return to Charlton Athletic next month.
The pair are both out on loan and that helped to free up money in the budget for the Addicks to bring in Andrew Shinnie and Paul Smyth on a temporary basis from Luton and QPR.
Midfielder Lapslie has scored four goals in 12 appearances for Mansfield Town.
Oztumer has had eight outings for Bristol Rovers – four of those as a substitute.
Bowyer said: “As far as I’m aware, they [Mansfield and Bristol Rovers] can send them back [in January]. But they are both doing well where they are, which is good.
“They are two good lads. I’d be surprised if they sent them back.”
