Jota played 45 minutes in a pre-season victory against American outfit Minnesota United – and some Aston Villa fans on Twitter were delighted with what they saw from their summer signing.
The 28-year-old moved to the Midlands club this summer from rivals Birmingham and penned a two-year deal.
He’s a right-winger that has tremendous technical ability on the ball and has shown in pre-season already he likes to cut inside to join in with attacks.
The Spaniard made 41 appearances across all competitions last season for Birmingham, scoring three goals and supplying nine assists in return.
He’s never played in the top-flight football of English football, but is set for his first crack now and will be hoping to force his way into the Villa XI on a regular basis.
A selection of Villa supporters were impressed by Jota in the pre-season win and feel he’s a major talent.
Dean Smith’s side cruised to a 3-0 victory, with Jack Grealish, Henri Lansbury and Birkir Bjarnason all on the scoresheet.
Jota has not been one of the high-profile arrivals this summer like Tyrone Mings or Wesley Moraes, but appears to be settling in nicely with his new club.
Here are some Villa fans commenting on Jota:
A real bargain. Looks class because he’s playing in a team that passes the ball on the floor 😉
