Solomon-Otabor, who spent time out on loan with Bolton Wanderers last season, will stay with the Seasiders until January 6.

He has made 30 first-team appearances for his parent club since making his debut in 2015.

Most of that experience has come in the Championship, which is where he scored his first goal for Blues during a 5-2 victory over Fulham that same year. He was also named the club's Young Player of the Year for 2015-16.

"He further strengthens the options we have available in forward areas and we're very much looking forward to working with him."
