Dundee Utd boss Courts again full of praise for Man Utd midfielder Levitt

Manchester United midfielder Dylan Levitt continues to impress on-loan with Dundee United.

Levitt has made 23 appearances at Dundee United scoring three goals and gaining an assist to his name in that time. His goal tally includes a great strike in their Scottish Premiership clash with St Mirren yesterday.

Speaking after the game, Dundee United manager Tam Courts was full of praise for the 21-year-old.

He told PA Sport: "In terms of technical ability, Dylan can play at a top, top level. With the Wales squad looking at younger players he's going to get an increased opportunity at that level. He's had a wonderful season and he's learned a lot. He's still learning a lot.

"I don't think he's perfect by any stretch of the imagination. But by having defining, match-winning performances, it's great to see him at such a tender age producing those.

"I was directly behind his goal and he got the break of the ball. And I don't think there's another player on the pitch who could actually have executed it like that.

"It's another big moment for him. He's here to pick up that kind of experience.

"That's not the type of game he'd normally be accustomed to with Man United's under-23s. It was a match he battled well in and he did well to score the equaliser."
