davidson aDavidson, who has spent two-years in Almelo, has put pen to paper on a two-year-deal at West Brom, after the Premier League finally agreed a transfer fee with Heracles.

A contract dispute between Davidson, and Heracles threatened to collapse the deal, but West Brom settled an undisclosed fee to snap the 23-year-old up.

Heracles signed the Australian from Pacos de Ferreira in 2012, and made 46 league appearances for Heracles over the past two seasons. Davidson has 10 caps for the Australian national team, and represented his nation at this summer’s World Cup.

West Brom boss Alan Irvine told the clubs official website, “I’m delighted we’ve been able to complete a deal for Jason. He had a fantastic World Cup when he performed very well against three top teams,”

“Jason is a good defender who has lots of energy, gets forward well and will give us competition for places at left-back with Sebastien Pocognoli.

“Due to contractual issues with his former club, there’s been a delay in Jason coming. This means he hasn’t trained properly since the World Cup so he’s going to need a little bit of time to catch up before we can expect him to perform at the levels he’s capable of.

“I spoke to Tim Cahill about Jason and he recommended him very, very highly both as a player and character. Tim sees him as a young player who will do extremely well in England and develop even further.”
