Saints manager Callum Davidson went for free agent Solomon-Otabor to fill the void left by injuries to David Wotherspoon, Glenn Middleton, and Stevie May.

After departing Wigan at the end of last season, the 25-year-old has been without a club, despite previous appearances for CSKA Sofia, Birmingham, Bolton, Blackpool, and Portsmouth.

The club announced the signing, on their official Twitter feed, saying;

The Club are please to announce the signing of former Wigan forward Viv Solomon-Otabor until January. Welcome @VivSolomon17.”

While Davidson add;

We have signed Viv and he trained with us. It was important to get someone after the injuries to David Wotherspoon, Stevie May and Glenn Middleton. He’s someone I have known about for a while, I have seen him play and have watched videos of his games. A friend down south alerted me to him being available and we’re glad to get it done.”
