Speaking to the Ulster Herald (h/t Mirror), Bradley was pleased at earning the opportunity to sign for Liverpool, but knew there was a lot of work to be done:

“But I know that the hard work is only starting. I’ll be part of the U18 squad and the good thing is I know the coaches and I know most of the boys in the team.”

The youngster added that he would be staying in familiar surroundings and was not worried about settling in. Bradley added that this was a dream for him and could not wait to get started.
