Fans from all the sections have stepped up and collected £700,000 for young Bradley. Everton have donated £200,000.

During Sunderland Vs Chelsea match on December 15, Bradley made the headlines as he appeared at the pre-match training on the field.

He took a penalty and scored which was eventually selected as the Goal of the Month jointly with Henrikh Mkhitaryan's 'scorpion' goal.

Overwhelmed with Premier League's gesture, Bradley's mother tweeted from his Twitter handle, "Brad just woke up and watched #MOTD2 and found out he got the Goal of the Month he is over the moon thank you Sunderland."
