Socceroo Jason Davidson dumped by West Brom

Socceroo Jason Davidson is club-less after West Bromwich Albion confirmed it has released him from a two-year contract only 12 months into the deal.

The Baggies confirmed the exit, along with a number of other players, shortly after their Premier League season concluded with a 4-1 defeat at Arsenal.

Davidson had struggled for opportunities under manager Tony Pulis at West Brom after signing with the club in August under previous boss Alan Irvine.

The 23-year-old defender only managed four appearances for the club, his last coming way back in October in the League Cup.

The Melbourne-born former Heracles man had joined the Baggies on a two-year deal but has been allowed to move on after a frustrating campaign.

Despite his lack of opportunities, he has managed to remain in all selected Socceroos squads since joining WBA, including playing a key part in Australia’s triumphant 2015 Asian Cup campaign.

He was named in Ange Postecoglou's 23-man squad to take on Kyrgyzstan in the opening 2018 World Cup qualifier in Bishkek on June 16.
