Kilmarnock's on-loan Alexei Eremenko could stay at Rugby Park providing Killie pay £1 to his club Metalist Kharkiv for his services.

The Finnish playmaker has been a big hit since joining on a year-long loan in August, helping the club into sixth position in the Scottish Premier League and winning the Player of the Month award for November.

Killie have won four of their last six games, with the 27-year-old Eremenko a big part of their progress, having scored two goals in 12 appearances

Metalist chief Oleksandr Yaroslavsky also stated that three Premier League clubs have their eye on the player and could look to lure him away.

"We have yet to receive any firm offers but three English Premier League clubs have shown an interest," said Yaroslavsky.

"It would take an offer in the region of £1m to £1.2m."
