Championship clubs on alert as Man Utd to loan out gifted Welsh youngster


Manchester United have put a host of Championship clubs on red alert amid suggestions they are ready to loan out gifted 19-year-old Dylan Levitt in the coming season.

The highly-rated teenager already has a number of clubs interested in giving him week in, week out game as part of his development during 2020-21.

And the move could see Levitt burst into Ryan Giggs’ Wales team for next summer’s Euro finals.

Giggs is a huge admirer of Levitt, regularly talks to United Academy boss Nicky Butt about his potential and has a proven record for giving talented Welsh young guns their chance at senior level.

The Wales manager has already promoted Joe Rodon, Chris Mepham and Dan James among others and sees Levitt as the next prodigy to make the step up.

He says Levitt has already ‘raised standards’ among the senior players by wowing in training and could pick him in the looming Nations League clashes with Finland and Bulgaria.

But a move into the Championship would help Levitt’s career develop. Giggs is keen to get him into his Wales side and regular football at club level could see Levitt stake his claim for a place at next summer’s Euros.

It is also possible Levitt will spend the year abroad, with Germany an obvious option given the willingness of Bundesliga sides to play young players.

There is also interest from the Netherlands, as United and Levitt weigh up the options.

Giggs picked Levitt in his squad for Wales’ Euro qualifiers near the end of the campaign, but says: “We had must-win games so I couldn’t really throw him in and put him in that pressure cooker.”

But he stressed: “He’s a huge talent. In training he is one of the best. Even though he has yet to play a Premier League game for United, he has already helped raise standards and the senior players feed off that.
