Some Aston Villa fans have been reacting to a tweet that was recently posted by Villa-focused Twitter account @AVFC_News, which asks the club’s supporters if they would offer Jota a new deal at Villa Park.
This post shares a link to an article that was recently published by BirminghamLive, which features some words that ex-Villa player Alan Hutton recently shared in relation to 28-year-old Jota’s potential future at the club.
Speaking about the Spaniard to Football Insider, Hutton claimed that Jota “has not managed to be consistent enough” since joining Villa back in July. The former Scotland international goes on to state that the playmaker, who is currently valued at £3.15m by Transfermarkt.co.uk, “will have to adapt quickly” to life in the Premier League “if he wants to stay” at Villa Park.
Some Villa fans have been sharing a critical view of Jota in response to @AVFC_News’ recent tweet. Read the critical posts from some Villa fans who have been discussing Jota recently in the tweets below.

villa should never have signed him. He was no good enough at Birmingham city and is unable to cut it in the Premier League.

He’s nowhere near the level required for Premier League. Decent backup in the Championship.
Not a chance, not up to Prem standard.
No wonder a blues fan said we were welcome to him and well happy having Gardener in return.

Would you like to see Jota receive a contract extension at Aston Villa?
YES, HE NEEDS MORE TIME TO PROVE HIMSELF
NO, HE IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH

What do we think?
Jota’s current deal at Villa Park is set to expire on 30th June 2021, as per Transfermarkt.co.uk. Since joining Villa last summer, Jota has made 12 appearances for the club in all competitions. In that time, he has scored one goal and provided just two assists for the club.
Considering that he scored three goals and provided nine assists for Birmingham City in the Championship last season, it may be understandable why some Villa supporters may have concerns about Jota’s ability to perform at Premier League level.
