DYLAN LEVITT is the latest Flintshire star off the production line to force his way into the Wales reckoning.

The 18-year-old Manchester United starlet grew up in Flint, before swapping the town’s high school for Ashton-on-Mersey in Sale after earning a scholarship with the Premier League giants.

Levitt, who played his club football for Connah’s Quay Tigers, starred for Flintshire Primary Schools in year five and six, the teenager progressing to Wales under age level and Victory Shield success.

Indeed, Levitt was part of the 2014 crop that ended Wales’ 65-year wait for Victory Shield success alongside the likes of Ben Woodburn, Tyler Roberts and Ethan Ampadu, who have all since gone on to represent Ryan Giggs’ senior side.

Giggs said he had been impressed by Levitt and has spoken about him to former team-mate and current Manchester United head of academy Nicky Butt.

“He’s a footballer and wants to get the ball down and pass,” the Wales boss said when announcing his 28-man squad for the forthcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers against Croatia and Hungary.

“He did well in Portugal (during the training camp) last week and that’s why he’s in the squad.”

Levitt is joined in the Wales squad by fellow Flintshire raised trio, Danny Ward, Tom Lawrence and Wayne Hennessey.

Aaron Ramsey and Ben Davies have been left out, however, the former struggling to recover from a hamstring injury that ruled him out of the Europa League final with Chelsea, while the latter has an ongoing groin problem that Tottenham want to assess following Saturday’s Champions League showpiece.

On Davies, Giggs said: “It’s been troubling him all season and he wants to get it right. It’s important to him, Spurs and for us that he does that. I left Ben out of the squad back in November (for a friendly against Albania) to give him a bit of a rest because he’s played a lot of football.

“It was more of a fatigue element, but Tottenham have done so well this season he’s needed to play.

“He can play, he can get away with it. But it’s more about him getting it right.

“He’s not happy with it and he’s got a huge game this weekend. After that game he’s going to see the specialist and get it right for next season. He’s fit to play on Saturday, but we talked and he’s not quite happy with it.”

Star forward Gareth Bale, who has not featured for Real Madrid for the last month amid rumours of a fall-out with club manager Zinedine Zidane, is included in the 28-man selection, as is Ampadu, the Chelsea midfielder overcoming a back problem.

Swansea winger Daniel James, who has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United, returns after missing the Portugal training camp earlier this month through compassionate leave following the death of his father.

“Obviously it’s terrible what has happened,” Giggs said. “I spoke to Dan, he is really keen to meet up, he is really keen to be involved.”

James’ club-mate Joe Rondon and Barnsley duo Ben Williams and Kieffer Moore are the other uncapped players in the party, alongside Levitt, for the clash with Croatia in Osijek on June 8 and the trip to Budapest to tackle Hungary three days later.
