The on-loan Paris Saint-Germain attacker has not played for Stoke in the league since the end of November, but Lambert has confirmed that the Spaniard is in his thinking for the clash with Brighton this weekend.
"We seem not too bad at the minute in terms of injuries. Jese will be back in the squad. He played in the U23s match on Monday and will come back into contention," Lambert told reporters.
Jese has scored once and provided two assists in 10 appearances for Stoke during the 2017-18 campaign.
The Potters will enter the clash with Brighton in 18th position in the Premier League table.
