After having his West Brom contract cancelled by mutual consent, the Swede agreed a deal to move back to his native Sweden with Malmö earlier in the week.

But the 31-year-old ensured he would be remembered in the West Midlands after offering up all the furnishings from his luxury house in Solihull to the Sue Ryder care centre charity.

That included not only all of Rosenberg's furniture but also items such as kitchen plates, cutlery and utensils, taking six hours to clear.

The haul was so large, it had to be split up between Sue Ryder branches in Sheldon, Kings Heath, and Harborne.

"I wasn't a West Brom fan before, but I am now!" Tracey Evans, stock generator for Sue Ryder's local shops, told the Birmingham Mail.

"When we had finished there were just the beds left for them to sleep in.

"They even offered us a 20 foot trampoline in the back garden, but we had nowhere to put it."

The donation will raise thousands for the charity, which provides care for members of the public with life-changing illnesses.

Mrs Evans added: "It is all good stuff - a lot of the furniture is minimalistic.

"We really are so grateful because we are so desperate for furniture.

"As a charity, we have to sell items at a low price, but we expect the donation to fetch around £3,500.

"He and his wife were wonderful. I think it is really nice that he thought about our charity."
