Manchester United have confirmed that Dylan Levitt has signed his first professional contract with the club.
The Welshman is just 17 years old, but is steadily making a name for himself in the youth league.
The youngster has, on several occasions, displayed an incredible range of passing, and his distribution has been likened to that of a more famous former academy graduate, Paul Scholes.
Levitt only moved to United in June last year, but is gaining a lot of followers, and is being tipped for a bright future.
He is another talent signed under the watch of Nicky Butt, who has transformed the academy since he was appointed as the club’s Head of Academy.
