Kilmarnock to hold on to Naismith
Kilmarnock manager Jim Jefferies
Jefferies hopes to keep Naismith for as long as he can
Kilmarnock manager Jim Jefferies does not expect to lose Steven Naismith before the transfer window closes.

The 19-year-old forward is with the Scotland U21s after spending two days on trial with Arsenal.

And Jefferies told BBC Sport: "He enjoyed himself at Arsenal, he met Arsene Wenger and it's good experience.

"I must stress that nothing was ever agreed with Arsenal. It was just an invitation. One day he'll go but, hopefully, it won't be for a while."

Naismith was voted Young Player of the Year in Scotland last season after scoring 13 goals for Killie.

And Jefferies added: "We're under no pressure to sell him but, at the same time, we would not hold the lad back."
