Dylan Levitt has been called into Wales’ international squad as a replacement for Aaron Ramsey, BBC Sport reported.

Levitt has made superb progress over the past 12 months for Manchester United, establishing himself as a key player for the under-23s.

He starred in the 4-0 away win over Newcastle on Friday, providing an assist for Largie Ramazani’s goal.

Levitt’s call up into the Wales international side is another reminder United have a special talent on our hands.

In the summer United took four players on tour, James Garner, Angel Gomes, Tahith Chong and Mason Greenwood. Levitt was extremely unlucky not to be the fifth.

He is a central midfielder with an eye for a pass, who likes to attack. It would not be a surprise at all if he ends up making his first team debut this season.

Giggs factor

Last year we pointed out that Ryan Giggs might end up being crucial in terms of Levitt’s development.

That is proving to be the case, with Giggs calling Levitt into the Wales team, where he will accompany Dan James.

Levitt was brought into the squad in June, but did not play in any of the matches.

Giggs’ latest decision shows this decision was no one-off, and he sees the young midfielder as able to help his own cause.

The experience will only benefit Levitt, and can help United out too.

It is a helpful hint to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer that United have a big talent in the ranks, and he should pay close attention himself to the midfielder’s progress and what he has to offer.
