Dundee United’s Manchester United loanee Dylan Levitt says former Scotland captain Darren Fletcher helped sell him on a season-long loan move to the Scottish Premiership.

Levitt has made a positive impression since arriving at ‘the Arabs’ in the summer transfer window. Fletcher is the technical director at Manchester United and Levitt has sought his advice on SPFL life.

The Manchester United talent explained: “Darren Fletcher spoke to me a few times before I came up and he said, ‘Go and show what you can do, it’s a good league, the quality is very good and it is very physical and try to do well’. He’s very supportive. I was with them (Manchester United) in pre-season for a month and he was always on to me.

“He was always wanting the best out of me, day-in, day-out in training. He was always helping me if I was struggling, always by my side in training really. If I needed anything I asked him and he was always there. It is always good to get out on loan to get game time, to try to improve yourself as a player.

“Hopefully I can show what I can do here and show the players and staff what I am capable of. United just wanted me to go out and express myself and obviously they will assess me when I go back but they just want me to do my best.”
