Winger Viv Solomon-Otabor arrived at the DW Stadium on a short-term deal this summer after a spell in Bulgaria with CSKA Sofia. A former Crystal Palace and Birmingham City youngster, Solomon-Otabor made his EFL debut at the age of 19 in a Championship clash between the Blues and Nottingham Forest. After a brief loan spell with Bolton Wanderers in 2017, he joined Blackpool on a season-long loan for the 2017-18 season and enjoyed success at Bloomfield Road, playing in all-but two league games for the Tangerines before returning to St. Andrew’s.

In the summer of 2019, he opted to move to Bulgaria with CSKA Sofia, who were involved in the 2019-20 UEFA Europa League.
