Jota says he’s “settled really well” as he now looks to help his new club have a successful first season back in the Premier League.
The wing maestro was the first through the door after our promotion to the top-flight, having worked with Dean Smith during their time together at Brentford.
He’s impressed greatly in pre-season so far and attributes it to the comfort he already feels playing in the claret and blue.
I’ve settled very well, I’m very happy to be here. I feel comfortable with the style of play.
He said: “I’m very happy with the team principles, to take the ball, work with it, because that’s my favourite style to play.
“I feel more comfortable with this because the team always want to play that style.
“I’ve settled very well, I’m very happy to be here. I feel comfortable with the style of play.
“Since the manager called I knew I wanted to come here, because I know the way he likes to play football is the way I like, it is similar. I am very happy to work with him.
“It was a good time at Brentford, I know him very well and I feel I want to give back to him with the confidence he has put in me.
“Really I am feeling in my best moment now. I have more experience now, I have played a lot of games, and I feel this is good a moment to have this opportunity at such a big club.”
Jota is also relishing linking up with Jack Grealish, a forward he admires greatly.
He added: “I know Jack from playing against him with Brentford and Birmingham.
“He moves the ball very well, and always wants to play the ball in a combination.
“I’m happy to be on the pitch with him because I feel we have the same style of football and we can combine. Really for me it is so pleasurable to play with quality players.”
