The SNP is claiming victory in Glasgow despite narrowly failing to take overall control of the city council as Labour was ousted from power after almost 40 years.
The party's own analysis suggests it could be in contention in more than a dozen constituencies across the country after finishing second in the council ballot with a 25% share of first preference votes.
However, there appears to be little appetite for the idea as Mr Jeffrey said he had no responses from any of the parties yet - and the deadline for candidates is this week.
Scottish Labour deputy leader Alex Rowley meanwhile insisted his party is still a "major party" in local government, despite losing seats.
"Not to even be prepared discuss the possibility of such an agreement is short sighted in the least".
The SNP has lost its overall majority in Dundee, although it remains the largest party there with 14 councillors.
The analysis also suggests that the party is ahead in Edinburgh South, which is now home to Labour's only MP in Scotland, Ian Murray.
The former first minster continued: "I've never taken any election battle for granted, I've represented the north-east of Scotland for 30 years and every election the Tories tell me they are going to beat me and every time they fall short".
Ruth Davidson, the Scottish Tory leader, yesterday tried to use her party's strong showing at the council elections as a springboard for the upcoming Westminster poll.

Liberal Democrats picked up 6,872 while Labour gained 4,407 first votes.
"SNP MPs like Pete Wishart will be MPs that go to Westminster to stand up for Scotland, make Scotland's voice heard and protect Scotland's interests".
"The strength of feeling that's out there at this election is so much stronger than I've come across at previous elections", she said.
"In terms of the strengthening of Theresa May, certainly if you look at the results in England, Theresa May is on course for a landslide victory - that raises a really important question in Scotland over the next few weeks".
And although the SNP will certainly "win" the general election in Scotland, just as they have the local government elections, they now have cause for concern.
She added: "Let's take the Tory argument at face value".
Nicola Sturgeon has dismissed claims that the surge in Tory support in Scotland could derail her plans for a second independence referendum as "ludicrous". "Voting Tory doesn't send a message to Nicola Sturgeon - it sends Theresa May back to Downing Street".
But a resurgent Tory party have said the seat is a key target and have urged Unionist voters to back them. Turnout will also be higher next month, although the 46.9 per cent turnout last week was higher than normal for council votes.
The First Minister and SNP admitted the Conservatives in Scotland had "a good day by their standards", with the party returning a record number of councillors north of the border.
