Dundee United manager Thomas Courts is hopeful Manchester United loanee Dylan Levitt will be back training with his side next week after a recurrence of a knee injury forced him to withdraw from the Wales squad to face Belarus and Belgium.
Levitt was named in Robert Page’s 28-man squad for the double-header with Belarus and Belgium as Wales look to secure a World Cup playoff spot by sealing second-place in Group E – although their performance in the Nations League should see them guaranteed a playoff spot even if they fail to finish second behind Belgium in their World Cup qualifying group.
The Dundee United loanee missed the 5-2 defeat by Hearts at the weekend as a result of the knee injury but Courts is hopeful he’ll be back in time for the Arabs’ Premiership clash with Aberdeen later this month.
“Dylan Levitt was nursing an injury last week as well and he’s obviously not in the Wales squad,” Courts said [Courier].
“He was ill with a virus and then when he came back to train, he had a recurrence of the knee problem he had.
“But the medical staff think it has settled down. He should be back training next week.”
Levitt has made ten appearances for Dundee United so far this season since moving to Tannadice on loan from Manchester United.
The Welsh international has impressed for the Arabs and his return comes as the Arabs look to end stop their recent slide and pick up a win after back-to-back defeats at the hands of St Johnstone and Hearts.
