Both men have yet to make a single first team appearance and were not fancied under Neil Lennon to make an impact.
Whoever comes in as manager will be looking at the squad with a fresh pair of eyes and both men are likely to get an opportunity to impress.
There’s higher hopes for Luca at the moment, the midfielder looks hungry and dynamic. His short loan spell to Queens Park being enough for him to get a nod into the under 21 setup.
For Jonathan, he could struggle for game time. His Dundee loan was sup and down and towards the end he didn’t get a lot of game time.
