Australian international departs for the 2016/17 season- Jason Davidson leaves Huddersfield Town on loan
- Australian international joins FC Groningen
- Reaction from Head Coach David Wagner
Huddersfield Town defender Jason Davidson is set to complete a move to Dutch Eredivisie club FC Groningen on a Standard Loan for the rest of the 2016/17 season.
The 25 year-old Australian international will move to Groningen until 31 May 2017, with the Dutch club having the option to buy the defender at the conclusion of the loan.
Davidson, who signed for the Terriers from Premier League side West Bromwich Albion in June 2015, has already played in the Eredivisie during his career, spending one and a half years at Heracles Almelo before signing for the Baggies in 2014.
Jason made 30 appearances in his debut season for Town last term, but he hasn’t appeared in a match day squad for David Wagner’s First Team in the opening four matches of 2016/17.
He is under contract at Huddersfield Town until the summer of 2018.
Huddersfield Town Head Coach David Wagner explained:
“This is a good move for everyone. Jason is a senior player and is obviously keen to play regular football and that is not something we can offer here at the moment.
“Jason has a profile in the Netherlands from his time playing in the country and we all wish him the best of luck.”
