Hearts boss Jim Jefferies is not getting too concerned over his pursuit of Kilmarnock midfielder Craig Bryson.

Hearts are continuing to negotiate with Killie over a move for the 23-year-old but could step up their interest in veteran Paul Hartley as Jefferies looks to add an attacking midfielder to his squad.

"I'm not confident until they agree terms and sign on the dotted line," Jefferies told the Evening News.

"I learned over the years not to get screwed up about it. If it happens, it happens.

"If it doesn't, you just have to move on. We've made a bid for Craig and it's up to Kilmarnock if they take it."
