Baggies made to wait for Socceroo swoop

West Brom will have to wait for Jason Davidson to solve his contract dispute with Heracles Almelo before making a move.

The Baggies have held talks with the Australian international and it is understood that the defender is keen on a move to the Hawthorns.

It had been thought Davidson would be able to move as a free agent this summer after seeing his contract with Heracles Almelo come to an end, but the Eredivisie side have now said they have activated a one-year option in his deal to keep him at the club.

Heracles director of football Nico-Jan Hoogma has revealed the decision was made to extend his deal as Davidson indicated he wanted to remain with the Dutch side in January.

Hoogma told Dutch media earlier this week: "In January, Jason and his agent indicated they would like to continue here for two (sic) more years.

"He wanted to wait until the World Cup with Australia to decide but because we wanted to keep him we haven't terminated his contract.

"The fact he hasn't left (by July 1) means he is under the same conditions. Those are the rules of the collective agreement for professional footballers and we've discussed this with Jason and his agent."

Albion will now have to wait and see if the 23-year-old is obliged to honour the deal or if he is available to move as a free agent.

If Davidson is bound to his deal with Heracles the Baggies may decide to offer a fee for the left-back but at present it seems as if the Premier League side will wait and see how the situation develops before they make a move.
