Dennis Greene is hopeful that Boston United can bring Notts County loanees Greg Tempest and Kyle Dixon back to the Jakemans Stadium for the remainder of the season.

The duo have impressed during their previous spells with the Pilgrims, and the manager is hopeful that he can have the midfielders at his disposal for the second half of the Vanarama North season.

However, due to the League One side being affected by the transfer window, Tempest and Dixon would not be able to return until Sunday’s visit of Colwyn Bay at the earliest.

“It looks like we should be sorting something out this week,” Greene said.

“They can’t come back until the transfer window opens on January 1, but we’ll be sorting something out this week for them to come back.”

Because the duo have both reached the maximum 90-day stay available for a short-term loan deal, if Tempest and Dixon were to retrun they would do so on long-term deals, most likely for the remainder of the season.

Meanwhile, strikers David Fallah and Zeph Thomas have both signed dual contracts with other clubs.

In order to gain more match fitness, Fallah has been turning out for Harrow Borough, while Thomas has returned to Sheffield FC.

Greene says the pair remain in his plans.

He added: “We’ve got to try to keep them fit and ready.

“The longer it goes on that we’re playing the same team each week they’re losing fitness.

“So at the moment they’re on a dual form and we can call them back as and when.”
