The 30-year-old looked out of sorts when playing for the City reserves in a 2-1 win over Huddersfield on Wednesday, spurning two gilt-edged chances.
"Nicky did alright in the game yesterday but we won't be taking it any further," said the Scot.
"He's not really the right type of winger we are looking for and if we got him it would be a case of simply taking somebody just for the sake of it.
"We've got to inject a bit more youth into the squad. We have a lot of players of a certain age and bringing in another player who is 30 would not change that."
City are also unlikely to be taking any further interest in the other trialists who featured in the game - French midfielder Eric Deloumeaux and Yugoslavian goalkeeper Bojan Isailovic.
And Jefferies concluded by ruling out suggestions that Everton striker Danny Cadamarteri could be on his way to West Yorkshire.
"We've noted him down as being a player who is available but we haven't made any move. A wide player is still our priority."
Meanwhile, the club have sacked two of it's first year professionals.
Adam Hardy and Ben Jones have both been dismissed from Valley Parade over allegations of bullying. Both players had been handed squad numbers this season and have appeared for the first team.
They have been given seven days to appeal against the club's decision.
