David Silva is hoping his good Kilmarnock form will not go unnoticed by clubs in England.

The Portuguese winger continued a promising start to his Kilmarnock career by netting his first goal for the club in their midweek victory over Hibernian in the Co-operative Insurance Cup.

The 24-year-old said: "The Scottish championship is very strong and they have good teams that play in Europe, so I think it's a good standard.

"The level here is good, but you are close to England and it can help you get a move there.

"Every player is looking upon this as a stepping stone, but first we have to think about the team we are in and try to help them get the best results we can."
