Preston North End manager Darren Ferguson is hoping to keep Stoke City duo Michael Tonge and Danny Pugh at Deepdale.
Both players are currently on one-month loan deals and have started Preston's last three Championship games.
Ferguson has been impressed by Tonge and Pugh, and is planning talks with Stoke counterpart Tony Pulis regarding the possibility of extending their deals.
"If I could buy them both I would," said Ferguson. "They are very good players.
"They give you solid performances week-in, week-out and that's what we need right now. I'll be speaking to Tony.
"We said we would speak when the loans were coming to an end and hopefully there will be some positive news.
"We have managed to get players in and they have made a difference."
