Kilmarnock boss Jefferies plans transfer talks

Kilmarnock boss Jim Jefferies hopes to splash out in the summer market.

Jefferies will hold discussions with chairman Michael Johnston at the end of the season to see if money can be made available for his transfer budget.

While Kilmarnock have cashed in on goalscorers Kris Boyd, Steven Naismith and Colin Nish, losing all three in barely two years for fees amounting to around £2.5million in total, Jefferies has not been given substantial funds to strengthen his squad.

He said: "We know we've got to look at where we go in the future and that can be done at the end of the season.

"Then we can re-address what's needed to be done to take us forward and get back to the two or three years where we've had success.

"We know how to do that, whether we can or not will be down to our discussions.

"I'm sure they've learned their lessons over the last few weeks that you can't keep losing good players, that you have to replace them with good players.

"We have to relent a wee bit in taking these steps and I'm sure they'll do that.

"At this moment we should be discussing getting enough points to pull out of trouble sooner rather than later."
