Danny is a former Carlisle United youth player and now plays for the Edith Cowan University football team in Joondalup, Western Australia. He was allegedly attacked and suffered severe head injuries at a railway station after spending the day with his teammates.
They have issued a new statement though, in which they have said his condition had deteriorated.
This statement said:
Following his injury, a GoFundMe appeal was set up by his friend Steve Barton, with the aim of supporting him and his girlfriend financially.
His family said that someone was with him at all times in hospital.
They added: "The incredible staff at Royal Perth Hospital continue to support our decision to do everything possible to save Danny and we will forever be grateful for their compassion, understanding and skill.
"We know the medical prognosis is as serious as it gets, but this is our Danny. He has never given up and neither will we."
They also urged people to continue sending their best wishes.
