The 22-year-old, a team-mate of striker Craig Mackail-Smith in the Championship, is eligible to play for Scotland through his Edinburgh-born grandfather.
Levein said: "He's been brought to our attention. Scout Michael Oliver is doing the research."
Meanwhile, Dutch blunder ref Kevin Blom has finally admitted he was wrong to award the Czech Republic a penalty in their controversial Euro 2012 qualifier with Scotland.
Blom awarded the Czechs a spot-kick when Jan Rezek went down in the box, with the 2-2 draw proving fatal in Scotland's quest to qualify for next summer's finals.
He said: "It's hard, but that's the consequences when a referee makes a mistake.
"I liken it to team sport and, in that context, I lost that match.
"Believe me, that was the feeling I had after that match."
Blom admits he was stunned by the furore over his decision.
He added: "After seeing the video I realised I had made a big mistake and that really got to me.
"This match and all the consequences after it really affected me a lot. It was tiresome to be confronted with this every day.
"After watching the game again for the last time I collected my notes and put everything in the cabinet, closing this difficult episode in my career."
