LEVITT'S DUN DEAL
Scottish Premiership side Dundee United have signed Manchester United youngster Dylan Levitt on loan.
The 20-year-old joins until the end of the season following a call-up to the Wales squad for Euro 2020.
Levitt played once during the tournament and is aiming to make his Tangerines debut against St Johnstone on Sunday.
The club are awaiting international clearance before Tam Courts can name him in his line-up for the trip to Perth.
Levitt made his Manchester United debut in November 2019 before a pair of loan spells last season.
After five appearances for League One Charlton, he made the move to Croatia with Istra 1961, where he played nine times.
He joins fellow Red Devils prospect Reece Devine in gaining first-team football in Scotland, and the St Johnstone loanee could face his Old Trafford colleague on Sunday.
Levitt is the tenth United player to be sent out on loan this summer with Amad Diallo tipped to be the next, with a move to Sheffield United in the works.
SAN THE MAN
Jadon Sancho is giving Ole Gunnar Solskjaer the type of headache all managers dream of for Sunday's Prem clash at Southampton.
Bruno Fernandes' hat-trick led last Saturday's 5-1 mauling of Leeds – with £73million new boy Sancho coming off the bench.
But Solskjaer insists Sancho is in "contention" to start – meaning a huge selection dilemma.
The Norwegian chief has also bigged up new centre-back Raphael Varane.
Solskjaer said of the France and ex-Real Madrid star: “He’s quick, strong, good in the air, he can play with both feet.
“The short answer is everything about him is what you want.
“The Champions League wins he’s had, the World Cup win, everything about him is class.”
Meanwhile, any interest United have in signing Germany ace Leon Goretzka has taken a huge blow.
The 26-year-old has reportedly agreed a new deal with Bayern Munich.
But it's also claimed fellow midfielder Jesse Lingard could still leave before the transfer window – to seek regular first-team football.
