Dundee United are still trying to secure a deal for Manchester United midfielder Dylan Levitt and reports suggest they could get something across the line within the next 24 hours.
According to Courier Sport, Levitt was locked in advanced talks with United chiefs on Wednesday evening to iron out the finer details ahead of a return to the Tangerines.
The Wales international could become Jack Ross’ first signing as Dundee United, however, it is not clear if this will be a second loan move or a permanent switch.
The report adds that Levitt believes Dundee United is the ideal place to continue his development and ensure he has the platform to plat first-team football.
Ross recently took charge at the club on a two-year-deal, replacing Tam Courts, who helped get the best out of Levitt last season when he was voted Fans’ Player of the Year for 2021/22.

“That process has been going on for a while now – and hopefully we are edging closer to bringing him back,” Ross said at the weekend.
“That would be brilliant because he was hugely impressive when I came up against him [as Hibs manager] last season. I watched other games and he’s obviously a full international with Wales.
“There is a lot in his profile that fits and he’s one we’ve been working on for quite a while and hopefully we’re getting closer to it.”
Nobody knows whether Ross will have as good an impact on Levitt as Courts did last season, but it’s a good sign that they want the young midfielder back and United would be wrong to stop him moving on unless he’s got a realistic chance under Erik ten Hag.
