The 22-year-old has made 43 appearances during a loan spell at Blackpool in all competitions this campaign, notching five goals.

Derby boss Gary Rowett, who is said to be favourite to land his signature, handed the winger his senior debut is August 2015 whilst at the club and he has since racked up 30 appearances for the Blues scoring just once before heading out at the start of the season.

The Whites are said to be amongst a trio of clubs monitoring his situation but Solomon-Otabor remains under contract at St Andrew's until the summer of 2019.
