Portsmouth have signed striker James Vaughan and winger Viv Solomon-Otabor on loan until the end of the season.

Solomon-Otabor, 23, moves from Birmingham City having made 10 appearances for Blues this season.

Vaughan, 30, has scored three goals in 20 games for Championship side Wigan Athletic this campaign.

"James is an experienced centre-forward and has been excellent for clubs for a number of years," said Portsmouth manager Kenny Jackett.

League One promotion hopefuls Pompey become Vaughan's 11th club since he made his first-team debut in the Premier League with Everton in 2005.

Solomon-Otabor is the sixth Portsmouth signing of the January transfer window following Andy Cannon, Bryn Morris, Omar Bogle, Lloyd Isgrove and Vaughan.

"He's an exciting young player who can be used on either side and impressed at this level with Blackpool last season," Jackett added.

"But he's been a bit frustrated at Birmingham and that's because of the standard of wingers they have at the club."
