Dylan Levitt (centre) was key to Dundee United’s fourth-placed finish last term and is set to follow Steven Fletcher to Tannadice

Dundee United have confirmed the signings of striker Steven Fletcher and midfielder Dylan Levitt on two-year deals.

Ex-Scotland forward Fletcher, 35, who last played in the Scottish Premiership with Hibernian in 2009, was released by Stoke City at the end of last season.

Meanwhile, 21-year-old Levitt has joined on a permanent basis from Manchester United after a successful 2021-22 campaign on loan at Tannadice.

“I’m proud to be back,” Levitt said

“The big attraction was to come back and play games. After I came back from injury, I feel I really hit the ground running. I want to continue that form into the new season and I’m really looking forward to getting started.”

Fletcher, who has gained 33 caps for Scotland, became recently-appointed head coach Jack Ross’ first summer signing, with Wales international Levitt following soon after.

“To bring a player of [Fletcher’s] experience will be a big asset both on and off the pitch,” Ross said. “The level of quality he has shown throughout his career makes him a really exciting addition.”
