Departing Albion winger Paul Brooker has admitted he is unsure whether he is good enough for the Premiership.

Brooker has less faith in himself than former Seagulls boss Micky Adams, who is re-signing him for Leicester on a two-year contract.

"It has come completely out of the blue, but I am absolutely thrilled by it," Brooker said.

"I have always wanted to play in the Premiership. I don't know if I am good enough, but there is only one way to find out.

"It's a massive step up from the First Division, the biggest step between all the divisions. I am not kidding myself, but I have got to give it a go."

Old Trafford, Highbury and Anfield beckon for Brooker next season, instead of Saltergate, Edgeley Park and London Road in the Second Division with the Seagulls.

"Some of the grounds are unbelievable," he said. "You dream about playing at them and I will look forward to playing against international and world class players. I'll enjoy the whole experience."

Brooker has already played at Leicester's year-old Walkers Stadium. He was in the Albion line-up when the Foxes beat them 2-0 in April to clinch promotion to the Premiership.

He said: "It's an unbelievable stadium. I haven't played in many like that. It was fantastic, one of the best I have been in. The playing surface is beautiful and hopefully I will be playing on it a few times next season!

"I think everyone at Leicester knows it is going to be a hard season. They did extremely well in Division One, but this is another level.

"I am sure Micky will be buying players with Premiership experience over the next few weeks and hopefully we can survive."

Londoner Brooker, signed by Adams for Albion from Fulham for £25,000 three years ago, scored 13 goals in 119 League games for the Seagulls during their rise from the Third Division to the First.

The out-of-contract 26-year-old said: "There is a lot of sadness about leaving Brighton. They have been fantastic for me. They gave me a chance when I was sitting in the Reserves at Fulham."
