Brentford have held talks with Jota about his loan spell at Eibar with a consideration of recalling him in January.
The Spanish club have all but confirmed that the winger is keen to end his loan spell early in order to play more football with sporting director Fran Garagarza admitting Jota is 'within his rights' to ask for a Griffin Park return.
And head coach Dean Smith confirmed that the club have also been frustrated by the lack of game time their winger has had.
The Bees boss said: “We keep in contact with Jota, who isn't having as much game time as he'd like to and we would like him to. It's only been a conversation so far.”
Reports in Scotland have said former Bees boss Mark Warburton has flown to Spain to speak with Jota, however such a move would be considered illegal as Dean Smith confirmed Brentford have had no contact from the Old Firm giants.
“I know we've had no contact from Rangers. He's our player and they'd have to come through us first,” he added.
“I'm sure that's just speculation. I'm not sure Mark would go out there to speak to one of our players. They would have to contact us to speak to one of our players for sure.”
