West Bromwich Albion have paid an undisclosed fee for Jason Davidson, reports The Daily Star.

It is also reported that Davidson was in a dispute with Heracles bosses over whether he was allowed to leave the club as a free agent.

Heracles were keen to keep Davidson at the club and wanted to offer the Socceroo star a one-year contract extension.

Agreed release

Davidson was eventually informed that he was able to pursue his dream of playing in one of the best leagues in the world. 

The Australian defender was very impressive throughout the 2014 FIFA World Cup; he played all three of Australia's world cup matches.

World Cup form

Davidson's performances at the World Cup hugely enhanced his reputation, earning him interest from two clubs in the Serie A, one club from the Bundesliga and English Premier League side West Bromwich Albion; who won the race for the Australian.

The Australian international could be a key part of the Baggies first team, especially after the departures of Liam Ridgewell and Goran Popov.

Squad competition

Davidson will have to compete against Belgian international Sebastian Pocognoli for the left back position.

Sebastien Pocognoli signed for West Brom after departing Hannover 96 for an undisclosed fee three weeks ago.

We wish Jason Davidson all the best at his new club.
