Manchester United youngster Dylan Levitt has been voted as ‘fans player of the year’ at loan club Dundee United.
The 21-year-old helped the Tangerines to an impressive fourth placed finish in the Scottish Premiership, which earns them a place in the third qualifying round for the Europa Conference League.
Dylan Levitt voted fans player of the year
Levitt was picked by Dundee United’s fans after a series of excellent performances this season, which have really kicked on over the past three months.
Manchester United got Levitt’s loan move wrong in 2020/21, with a poor spell at Charlton terminated early, in which he was affected by Covid. He then moved on loan to the Croatian league, to ensure he got some gametime ahead of Euro 2020.
The move to Dundee United was just as much of a gamble as the Charlton one, with questions over how he would stand up to the physical nature of the Scottish league. Levitt’s technical game is more suited to the Netherlands or Italy.
He has proved himself over the past season, scoring in midweek in Dundee United’s recent draw with Celtic.
Another top performance
At the weekend Levitt was excellent as Dundee United won 2-1 away at Ross County. His confidence was evident, attempting four shots at goal from midfield.
Levitt created two goalscoring chances and was efficient in possession, completing 92 per cent of his passes.
He won two tackles, made five ball recoveries, and touched the ball 70 times, always eager to get on the ball, winning six midfield duels.
Levitt ends the season with five goals, of which four have come in the last eight games. He has also been named as WhoScored.com‘s man of the match three times in the last eight matches.
Great to see a loan which works out
It is not always plain sailing for Manchester United’s loanees. Levitt learned this first hand last season. So he will be thrilled to have made this year a success.
This was a make or break year for Levitt, and even though he has been a hit, his future at Manchester United is unclear.
If Manchester United cannot find a use for him, it would be a great shame – but Dundee United would certainly take him. One way or another, Levitt won’t be short of a team next season.
