Championship Brentford have signed midfielder Jose Peleteiro Ramallo from Spanish top-flight side Celta Vigo. The 23-year-old, known as Jota, has agreed a three-year contract and arrives for an undisclosed fee.

Bees boss Mark Warburton said: "Jota is a very talented left-sided player. He is very highly regarded in Spain.

"He offers us real technical craft, an attacking threat and excellent set-piece delivery. He adds another level of quality to the squad."

Jota has played four times for Celta's first team and has had a loan spell at Real Madrid B.

"It is exciting for Brentford to attract players of this stature. There was a lot of interest from clubs in La Liga and the Championship," added Warburton.
