Markus Rosenberg has left West Brom, but the Swede will surely leave his mark on the Midlands. 

Through mutual consent, the striker and the club severed his contract, freeing him to leave England. 

But in departure, he has decided to donate all of his furnishings from his Solihull luxury house to the Sue Ryder Care Centre Charity. 

Per The Guardian, it took six hours to clear out Rosenberg's home of its belongings to donate, which included not only furniture, but also plates, cutlery and utensils. 

The Sue Ryder Care Centre supports people who are suffering from long-term and end-of-life needs. Rosenberg's donation is expected to raise several thousand pounds. 

Karen Rogers, the retail manager of Sue Ryder, told Press Association Sport (via the Guardian): 

From the whole team at Sue Ryder we'd like to say a huge heartfelt thank you to Markus for his generous donation. Support like this is amazing, and helps Sue Ryder provide incredible care to over 16,000 people living with life-changing illness across the UK...

Right now, one in four of us is living with a life-changing illness that needs specialist care. With help like this we can continue to support people, and their families, with the care they need and deserve, so thank you again to Markus for supporting us.
