He transferred to Albirex Niigata in 2007, but never settled at the club, making just 10 appearances, and spending time on loan at Vissel Kobe and Consadole Sapporo.

Davidson returned to the United States in February 2009 when he signed for Carolina RailHawks of the USSF Division 2 Professional League.[1] He helped the Railhawks in winning the NASL Conference title and earning a trip to the USSF D-2 championship series.

He spent the 2011 season with Tokushima Vortis of Japan's J. League Division 2. He remained at the club for one season and appeared in 24 league matches helping the club to a fourth place finish in, three points out of promotion.

At the end of the 2013 the Whitecaps released him and he signed with the Carolina RailHawks.
