Dundee United want to bring Dylan Levitt back to Tannadice on loan and have held talks with Manchester United over the Wales international. Levitt, 20, spent last season with the Tangerines and impressed over 29 matches in all competitions north of the border.
Sporting director Tony Asghar told the Sunday Mail: "We're still interested and talks are ongoing. He's got another year with Manchester United and a World Cup to aim for, to try and get into the Wales squad.
"Dylan is a player who fits into our system. He is well liked by all of the players and loved by the fans.
"We are still trying to see if we can do something there. Jack [Ross, the manager] likes the player, but when you bring a manager in, you have to run the list of targets past him."
Asghar added: "I think we know we are on the right track with targets. When you see Levitt and the influence he had, especially in the second half of the season, he is a player we would like at Dundee United.
"But right now, he is a Manchester United player. We are speaking to them and they know our feelings.
"Dylan is a player we would like to have. But it's going to take United and ourselves to come to an agreement."
