Charlton set to hold talks with Manchester United over midfielder’s loan stay – with Gills interested in Addicks defender

BY RICHARD CAWLEY

Dylan Levitt’s stay in SE7 is set to be reviewed – with the on-loan Manchester United midfielder badly struggling for minutes at Charlton Athletic.

The Wales international, 20, has not featured in the last 11 League One matches with two of his five starts coming in cup competitions.

Asked if his stay could be cut short, Addicks manager Lee Bowyer said: “It has been tough for him because he has Ben Watson in front of him. Ben is an experienced player who has done well for us.

“We will speak to Manchester United and see where they are with it as well. We’ll have to revisit this with Manchester United.”

Charlton look unlikely to part with Deji Oshilaja in the January transfer window despite interest from Gillingham.

The 27-year-old South Londoner provides cover for a number of positions and a crammed fixture schedule is set to be compacted even further by postponements due to Covid-19 cases.

Charlton are set to complete the capture of FC Midtjylland striker Ronnie Schwartz next week.

    Charlton have not been fair to Levitt. He was taken on loan when they were in trouble with new signings. He does not deserve the way he has been treated. He deserves better, a Wales International player should be respected.
