A former West Brom footballer has left the entire contents of his Midlands home to charity.
Markus Rosenberg had his contract with the Premiership side cancelled by mutual consent earlier this month but before departing from England he donated all the furnishings from his home in Solihull to the Sue Ryder care centre charity.
The haul includes all of the striker's furniture, kitchen plates, cutlery and utensils.
The haul is set to net the organisation, which provides compassionate care and support for people with long-term and end-of-life needs, several thousand pounds.
Sue Ryder's regional retail manager, Karen Rogers, said: "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.
"At Sue Ryder we re-use, recycle and re-sell over 15,000 tons of donations a year that might normally end up as unnecessary landfill. Just one bag of unwanted clothes could help us provide four hours of incredible hospice and neurological care to people 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."
