Lee Johnson delighted to add quality as Hibs sign Dylan Levitt from Dundee United Hibernian FC

Hibernian have completed the signing of Dylan Levitt from Dundee United, with manager Lee Johnson saying he is adding real quality to his team.

The 22-year-old leaves Tannadice after United’s relegation to the Championship and has signed a three-year deal after Hibs agreed an undisclosed fee for the midfielder.

Talks were finalised on Wednesday, meaning the player will meet up with his new team-mates ahead of their trip to Marbella for pre-season training on Thursday.

Johnson believes he’s adding a player who will gel quickly with his new side and show the attributes that attracted the club.

“Dylan adds real quality to our midfield,” the Hibs boss told the club website. “We have strong competition for places in there now and have a lovely blend of qualities.

“He joins us with good pedigree, has a great passing range, and will fit seamlessly into our evolving squad.

“We are delighted to have secured his services and look forward to working with him.”

Levitt, a product of Manchester United’s youth academy, initially moved to Dundee United on loan in 2021 and enjoyed a successful season at Tannadice, prompting the club to seal a permanent deal.

However, the Welshman’s second season didn’t hit the same heights as United struggled throughout and were ultimately relegated form the top flight.

The midfielder, who has 13 caps for his country, will now be targeting a place in Johnson’s side as Hibs look to build on a fifth-placed finish last year, and progress in Europe.

Hibs will be back in competitive action on July 27 when they face Vikingur Gota of the Faroe Islands or Andorran side Inter Club d’Escaldes in the second qualifying round of the Europa Conference League.
