Responses to Dylan Levitt from Dundee United players show how highly he is rated

Dylan Levitt was voted as Dundee United’s fans player of the year after a highly encouraging spell on loan at the Scottish club.

The Manchester United midfielder has certainly been appreciated by his teammates too, as the responses to his goodbye Instagram post show.

Levitt played a key role in helping Dundee United to secure a European place for next season, and it is highly likely the Scottish side would bring him back if they could.

The Wales international scored four goals in his last eight games of the season from midfield, including a spectacular long range effort against Celtic.

Responses to Dylan Levitt

Levitt’s message on Instagram drew some responses from his Dundee United teammates. Kerr Smith, who played with him in the first half of the season before signing for Aston Villa, praised him as ‘unreal’.

Teammate Tim Akinola hailed him as a ‘wizard’, while Dundee United’s official player of the year John Harkes lauded Levitt as an ‘absolute player’.

Levitt now faces an uncertain future, with his Manchester United contract winding down. It is unlike United to let a bright young talent walk away for free.

Levitt has expressed intention to return to United and fight for a place under new boss Erik ten Hag.

He told The Courier: “I still keep in touch with boys at United frequently and they are excited about the new manager. When you hear a new manager is coming in, it gives a buzz about the place.

“I’d love to be able to go back and make an impact; it’s everyone’s dream to do that.”

Levitt’s ability in possession and confidence to get on the ball make him the type of player Ten Hag should enjoy working with.

It may just depend on whether the chances will actually come his way, with United likely to sign new players in midfield this summer.

Sticking around might not be in Levitt’s best interests, and if Wales win their June play-off to qualify for the World Cup, the midfielder will be anxious to be at a club where he can play regularly before the tournament.
