New Birmingham City manager Steve Cotterill is set to receive a huge boost with news that Spanish attacking midfielder Jota is available for selection once again following injury according to the Birmingham Mail.

The 26-year-old midfield wizard has been out of action for the past month after picking up a hamstring injury in the 2-0 defeat to Leeds United in the Sky Bet Championship at Elland Road.

With the Blues set to face a huge fixture against shock promotion chasers Cardiff City at St Andrews on Friday evening, it has been revealed that Jota is back in full training and could make his return from injury in that match.

The Spaniard has made just two appearances for Birmingham City to date since joining the club from Brentford on a four-year deal on Transfer Deadline Day. The Blues paid an undisclosed fee to secure the player’s services and that sum is believed to have been significant.

Jota first moved to England in August 2014 joining Brentford from Spanish club Eibar. The midfielder soon became a fans’ favourite at Griffin Park with the player putting in many cultured performances. Jota made 75 appearances in total for The Bees while he scored 23 goals for the club.

The player was tipped to move to the English Premier League in the summer but instead eventually secured a move to Brentford’s Sky Bet Championship rivals Birmingham City.
