Loan exits

Dylan Levitt has just agreed a loan to Dundee United and teammate James Garner could exit too.

Solskjaer said a deal is in the pipeline, with The Athletic reporting Nottingham Forest are close to bringing him back.

Speaking about the loan move, Solskjaer said: “I would definitely think Jimmy will go on loan, thats more or less done.

“He has done really well in pre-season, impressed me. Another year or six months in the Championship will help him.”
