Dundee United want to keep Dylan Levitt for next season as manager Tam Courts labels it a top priority for the club this summer.
The on-loan Manchester United midfielder has played really well in the Scottish Premiership this season and he has been a big player in Dundee sealing the top six and trying to secure a European place.
The Red Devils need to make a decision soon because the Wales international is out of contract at the end of the season.
Now it has emerged that Dundee would love to bring Levitt back to Tannadice, so the midfielder won’t have a shortage of options.
Courts said (via Daily Record): “You can see why the Dundee United fans rate Dylan.
“You only have to look at the big moments he has in a United shirt.
“The stats tell you when Dylan is in the team you have a higher chance of performing well and winning.
“He seems really content at home at the club and he is stepping up at a crucial stage in the season.
“That is something Tony Asghar is seeing as a priority.
“I wouldn’t say there have been regular discussions but there have certainly been discussions happening.
“We would want to keep Dylan if it was possible and to build a team around him.
“Hopefully, that is something we can make a reality but at the same token you realise the potential he has.
“He is in a privileged position where he will have a good number of clubs wanting to sign him this summer.
“He also values what he has got with us highly and we bring out all the qualities he has in the way we want to play football.”
Stretty News understands that Levitt’s performances in Scotland this year could see one of the SPL’s top two clubs show an interest in his signature this summer.
At the very least, United should give Levitt a new deal because losing him on a free this summer would be of no benefit to anyone at the club.
Moreover, I highly doubt Erik ten Hag has been keeping an eye on Dundee United this season, so there will be a chance for young players like Levitt to get opportunities on pre-season.
Losing him now would show a lack of planning.
