The 29-year-old Black Cats frontman has donated £2,690 to a fund set up to raise money to cover the cost of an operation for Gateshead midfielder JJ O'Donnell, who is suffering from the rare foot condition sesamoiditis.

O'Donnell confirmed the news via his Twitter account, tweeting: "I'm not singling Danny out as without everybody donating, I wouldn't have ever reached my target, but a donation like that has left me speechless.

"I've never met Danny, but for him to put an astronomical amount like that towards a fund of a lad who he doesn't know speaks volumes of what a true gentleman he is."

Sunderland face Arsenal and Chelsea in their final two games of the season but Advocaat is confident his side can get a result.
