Whenever a person is moving house it can be tricky for them to transfer all their belongings to their new home.

So former West Brom striker Markus Rosenberg has decided not to bother, donating all his stuff to charity instead, reports midlands paper the Express and Star.

The Swedish international didn't leave much of an impression on the Premier League after his move to the Baggies in 2012, but has become a big hit with the Sue Ryder charity shop in Birmingham.

Tracey Evans, the store's manager, said she originally received a call from one of the player's representatives and revealed the scale of the job: "I got a team together with a van, we pulled up at his house and Markus was there. It was a big job, we got there around 8.30am and were there until around 2pm," she said.

"We took everything down to plates, and even his children’s Wendyhouse, slide and trampoline from the garden."

The charity is now expecting to raise a lot of money by selling the items.

It is a generous farewell gift from Rosenberg, who failed to score a single Premier League goal for the Midlands club. He leaves to join his hometown club Malmo in Sweden's top division.
