Jota has been named amongst Brentford's substitutes for their FA Cup third round game against Eastleigh.
Scott Hogan, however, misses out of the squad as he has a glute injury and the Bees are unwilling to risk their hotshot striker.
West Ham have also had multiple bids rejected for Hogan and there is a belief that the striker will have played his last game for the club.
Lasse Vibe will be playing up front in the absence of the former Rochdale striker.
Jota, meanwhile, has been named on the bench for the game with Eastleigh after the Bees received international clearance to name him in the squad.
The Spaniard, who was recalled from his loan spell at Eibar, has been linked with a move to Rangers but GetWestLondon understands that he will remain a Brentford player for the rest of the season.
Captain Harlee Dean has also been named in the starting XI despite being a booking away from a two-match ban.
Brentford team: Bentley, Egan, Dean, Barbet, Colin, Yennaris, Woods, McEachran, Field, Sawyers, Vibe.
Brentford substitutes: Bonham, Saunders, Hofmann, McCormack, Clarke, Jota, Mepham.
Eastleigh team: Stack, Hoyte, Dugdale, Doffin, Green, Coulson, Tugwell, Essam, Obileye, Constable, Bird
Eastleigh substitutes: Childs, Reason, Wilson, Mandron
