Manchester United and Wales midfielder Dylan Levitt is getting closer to a surprise loan to Croatia, according to the PA news agency.

After making his senior debut in last season’s Europa League clash against Astana in Kazakhstan, the 20-year-old academy graduate has won five senior international caps.

Levitt started the campaign with League One team Charlton, but United cut the loan short, activating their recall clause last month after being limited to just five appearances.

The midfielder has played twice for Neil Wood’s Under-23s since returning to United and now looks set to go on loan for more senior football.

The PA news agency understands that discussions have taken place with Croatian Premier League team Istra 1961 over a deal for Levitt, who hopes to be in the Wales squad in the revamped European Championship this summer.

The winter transfer window in Croatia ends on Monday.
