Scottish Premiership side, Dundee United, are keen on bringing back the Manchester United youngster, Dylan Levitt, for another loan spell at the club. The 21-year-old Welshman spent a successful season at Dundee United and helped them to a top-half finish in the league table. Manchester United are also considering sending him back on loan. Levitt is considered to be the future at Manchester United and his country, Wales, and will be playing in the World Cup. He needs game-time on the pitch, and that is the reason why his parent club is also willing to send him back.
Levitt made 25 appearances for the Scottish club last season. He played in the heart of the midfield and scored five goals for the club. The above heat map shows that Levitt stayed in the centre of the field and created plays for his teammates. He made fewer forward runs and mostly dictated the play.
The above viz shows the pass start location of the youngster as well as the threat created from passes at different time intervals. Levitt averaged 45.3 passes per 90 minutes with an accuracy rate of 82.17%. The Welshman averaged nine passes into the attacking third per 90 minutes, with a 63.9% accuracy rate. He was positive with his passing and averaged 15.7 forward passes per 90 minutes. Levitt also tried to break the opposition defence by attempting more than one through pass per 90 minutes. The midfielder created constant threats from passes throughout the match, as shown in the xT timeline.
Levitt was involved in fewer attacking actions, but the player was not shy about attempting shots from outside the opposition penalty box. The 21-year-old attempted 26 shots, and 11 of them were on target. Of these 26 shots, only four were attempted from inside the opposition’s penalty box. As a result, he posed a threat from outside the opposition’s penalty box. The Welshman could produce more bangers if he is signed once again by Dundee United.
The Welshman also performed his defensive duties last season. He was involved in 11.8 defensive actions per 90 minutes with a success rate of 74%. The above viz shows all the interceptions that were made by the youngster. Overall, he made 104 interceptions, most of them while contesting a duel. The midfielder also averaged 8.7 recoveries per 90 minutes, and 3.7 of them were made inside the opposition’s half. He also contested a few duels to help his side defend against the opposition’s attack.
Dylan Levitt adds a different dynamic to Dundee United’s game. He adjusted well to the team last season and will look to continue his good form. He can score and create goals, and that could be a big asset for Dundee United. The 21-year-old could end up playing in the Scottish Premiership once again.
