Hearts have warned potential suitors that they will not be selling Andrew Driver unless they get an offer which they cannot refuse.

The Jambos want a 'sizeable' transfer fee and say they are willing to listen to offers, reportedly in the region of £3.5million, for the talented young winger, who has recently been linked with Championship side Burnley and Dutch champions FC Twente.

The highly-rated 22-year-old, who has represented England at Under-21 level but is now clear to play for Scotland, is currently under contract at Tynecastle until 2013.

Hearts director Sergejus Fedotovas told Hearts.TV: "We absolutely know what we want to achieve.

"We have had a number of discussions with a few clubs and I'm glad we have been getting very healthy interest in the player.

"If we get a proposal which falls within our expectations then we will consider it very seriously.

"If not, then we will keep the player for the benefit of the team."

Fedotovas added: "Obviously, we will make a decision on what is in the best interests of the club.

"To a larger extent, the interests of the player and the club coincide - for us to achieve a sizeable transfer fee and the player to get to a higher level to continue his development would be quite important."

Bryson desire

Meanwhile, Kilmarnock midfielder Craig Bryson has revealed his desire to join former boss Jim Jefferies at Hearts.

The 23-year-old is currently contracted to Rugby Park until 2012, but the midfielder is ready to sign for the Edinburgh side as soon as the two parties agree a fee.

Bryson told the Edinburgh Evening News: "I enjoyed working under Jim Jefferies at Kilmarnock. He gave me my chance in the SPL and I would like to work under him again.

"I just got back from Australia the other day and I haven't heard anything more about the situation.

"Kilmarnock still don't know who their manager is going to be so I just don't know what is happening.

"I just need to wait and see if anything comes of Hearts' interest."
