Double deal for Baggies

West Brom have signed defenders Cristian Gamboa and Jason Davidson.

  • Cristian Gamboa: Costa Rica defender joins West Brom
  • Jason Davidson: Australia international also arrives at The Hawthorns 

Gamboa has completed his move after his work permit application was approved.

The Costa Rica defender, who had already agreed personal terms and passed a medical, joins from Norwegian club Rosenborg on a three-year contract.

A Football Association appeal panel granted a permit on Tuesday, and Gamboa is now confirmed as Albion's eighth close-season signing.

Gamboa, 24, can play at right-back or on the right of midfield and started all five of Costa Rica's World Cup games this summer.

West Brom had to wait patiently for Davidson 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 remained their player.

To get the deal over the line, Albion have paid an undisclosed fee for the 23-year-old left-back, who has signed a two-year contract, with an option in the club's favour for a further season.
