Brentford boss Dean Smith has stated that he is currently looking at the possibility of bringing back Jota to England during the January transfer window.
Jota enjoyed a fantastic debut campaign with Brentford after joining the club back in the summer of 2014 but a serious knee injury meant that the Spaniard missed a lot of action last season.
Surprisingly, Jota was allowed to move back to former club Eibar on loan during the January transfer window earlier this year and the deal lasts till the end of the current campaign.
However, the 25-year-old has struggled for regular minutes on the pitch with the La Liga side this season after being awarded only 200 minutes of action so far and it is clear to see that the attacker is well down the pecking order at the Ipurua Municipal Stadium.
Now Brentford boss Dean Smith has gone on to speak regarding Jota and has admitted that he could well look to bring back the Spaniard to Griffin Park this winter.
He was quoted saying by Get West London, “I can’t say any more at the moment. It’s a situation we’re monitoring to make sure he’s playing and enjoying his football still and whether his problems have been resolved and whether he’d look to come back or not. It’s one we constantly monitor.
“We have had discussions about him. When we have a meeting about the playing staff with the owner and directors of football, Jota is one who comes up.”
