Dundee United would like Manchester United's Dylan Levitt to return to the club, but he is also attracting interest from Championship clubs ahead of next season.
The young United midfielder was sent on loan to the Scottish Premiership last term and was one of their most impressive performers.
With 29 appearances, Levitt scored six goals and bagged one assist in a successful loan spell. He was voted as the Fans' Player of the Year for the club.
At 21-years-old, the midfielder will be desperate to make Wales' World Cup squad this winter.
Dundee United's sporting director, Tony Asghar, has confirmed that the club are in talks with Manchester United over a possible return to Scotland for the player next campaign.
"We’re still interested and talks are ongoing," Asghar told the Sunday Mail. "He’s just got another year with Manchester United and he’s got a World Cup to aim for, to try and get into the Wales squad.
"Dylan is a player who fits into our system. He is well liked by all of the players and loved by the fans.
"So yes, we are still trying to see if we can do something there."
A report from the Scotsman says that Cardiff City have also have credited with interest in the player, as well as Derby County before Wayne Rooney's departure and the club's relegation to League One.
"When you see Levitt and the influence he had, especially in the second half of the season, he is a player we would like at Dundee United," Asghar continued. "But right now, he is a Manchester United player. We are speaking to them and they know our feelings.
“Dylan is a player we would like to have but it’s going to take United and ourselves to come to an agreement.”
Levitt was part of a great midfield partnership with James Garner throughout United's youth teams.
Garner had a successful loan spell in the Championship last season with Nottingham Forest.
He was a key member of the squad that won the play-offs, and secured Premier League football at the City Ground next season.
Erik ten Hag will be assessing Garner throughout pre-season and determining what would be best for him next season.
United's midfield depth is slim, which gives him a better chance of involvement at Old Trafford, but a deal for Frenkie de Jong could be finalised by the end of next week.
