West Brom appear poised to finally conclude a move for Australia left-back Jason Davidson.

The Baggies have had to wait patiently for the 23-year-old to resolve a contract dispute with Dutch Eredivisie club Heracles Almelo.

Davidson, who played in Australia's three World Cup group matches, believed he had finished his contract with Heracles and had become a free agent.

Heracles, however, informed Davidson they had triggered a one-year option on that deal and he was still their player.

Albion have played their part in the row, and now talks over terms and a medical are scheduled to go ahead this week.
