Birmingham City were handed some transfer news today when on-loan winger Viv Solomon-Otabor revealed that he was open to leaving the club in the summer.
He has been on loan with Portsmouth in League One since January and told the Portsmouth News that he would be interested in a permanent switch.
The 23-year-old played just eight times in the Championship, all from the bench, before being shipped out on loan in January.
Since arriving at Fratton Park he has racked up five appearances and netted his first goal for the club in Tuesday night’s 3-2 win against Walsall.
His contract with the Blues expires in the summer meaning he will be a free agent if no deal is agreed before then.
So, should Garry Monk and co. let him go?
“Yes, but it’s a mistake on the player’s part.
“He’s not been in the side for much of the season, only getting the odd outing here and there.
“I’m not sure Jackett will be there next season if they fail to go up.
“He might not have a choice but return to Brum.”
“It would be a shame to see him leave for nothing.
“He will most likely be surplus to requirements at St. Andrews in the summer so will not be a big loss on the pitch.
“But considering their financial situation it will be an opportunity missed for them.”
“I can see him going.
“The Blues might feel it’s a missed opportunity but, at the same time, there are no guarantees with that.
“He needs to be playing now, so that should influence his decision.”
