Charlton boss Bowyer: Butt told me Levitt was best passer at Man Utd

Charlton Athletic manager Lee Bowyer says he signed Manchester United midfielder Dylan Levitt on the recommendation of Nicky Butt.

The 19-year-old has left United on loan for the first time in an attempt to secure first-team experience.

And Bowyer has revealed that Butt - head of first team development at United - said Levitt was the best passer at the club.

Asked what about the signing he was most impressed with Bowyer told Charlton's official website: "His passing, he doesn't give the ball away, as a midfielder that is important.

"He keeps the ball at the right times and he has the vision to open up any defence. I spoke to Nicky Butt at Manchester United, he said 'he's the best passer we have at the club'. If Nicky tells me that he can pass then I take his word for it.

"He's another good addition to the squad, he's a very good player. He's got talent and he's a Wales international. It just makes it more competitive for the players if you're bringing in international players."
