Jota joined Brentford in August 2014, having begun his professional career in Spain with Celta Vigo

Birmingham City have signed Brentford winger Jota on a four-year deal for a club-record fee in excess of £6m.

The day after signing Bees defender Harlee Dean, boss Harry Redknapp has made the 26-year-old Spaniard his 12th signing of the summer transfer window.

Blues have also signed free agent midfielder Jason Lowe on a one-year deal, following his exit from Blackburn Rovers at the end of last season.

The 25-year-old had been on trial at West Brom but was not offered a deal.

Lowe, who captained Rovers, played 196 games and scored once after progressing through the academy but left after their relegation from the Championship in May.

Jason Lowe’s final season at Blackburn ended with relegation from the Championship

Meanwhile, Blues have loaned German midfielder Robert Tesche to Bundesliga 2 side VFL Bochum for the season.

Blues’ previous club-record signing was the £6m paid to Valencia for Serbian striker Nikola Zigic in May 2010.

The reported transfer fee was more than that when Emile Heskey signed from Liverpool in May 2004, but the final instalment was waived when Blues were relegated in 2006 – and he ended up costing only £4.75m.
