Queens Park Rangers and Portsmouth are both interested in signing Manchester United youngster Dylan Levitt on loan, according to reporter Jonathan Shrager.
The 20-year-old has spent the first half of the season on loan at Charlton Athletic, but things haven’t gone exactly to plan.
Levitt made just five appearances in all competitions for the Addicks, with manager Lee Bowyer citing the physicality of League One being a factor for not giving the Wales international much playing time.
Bowyer opted for more experienced types such as Ben Watson in his engine room, leaving no place for the highly-rated Levitt who will now explore his options this month.
According to Shrager, Levitt will take in a couple of Under-23 games for United in the next few weeks before a decision is made on his future, but Pompey and the Hoops are certainly keen on giving him a chance.
The ultimate 2021 QPR quiz – Can you get 24/24 correct?
Levitt is thought of as a top talent at Old Trafford already, and after making his first team breakthrough last season in the Europa League, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be hoping his next potential loan spell will see him gain more game-time.
And when you take all things into consideration, he would probably suit a move to QPR more than Pompey, as they’re severely lacking in depth in the middle of the park, but he’s likely to get more time on the pitch at either than he did at The Valley.
The five-cap Wales man will probably be feeling a bit down having been out of favour at Charlton, however he has a chance to save his season at another EFL club.
There will probably be more interest than just QPR and Pompey because of his obvious talents, but United will probably make sure he is guaranteed regular starts before sanctioning a move.
It looks like Levitt is going to bide his time before making a decision though, and it may not be until the final few days in the window where we see the youngster in new colours.
