Blackpool striker DJ Campbell has been arrested in connection with a stabbing outside a nightclub, reports the Daily Mail.

Lancashire Police led Campbell away from Blackpool's training ground in front of astonished players and management. He was allowed to change from his kit and was formally arrested.

Campbell, who has played in the Premier League with Birmingham City, was held in the cells at Blackpool Police station before being handed over to detectives from the Metropolitan Police.

Campbell is on loan at Blackpool from Leicester City who bought him for £2 million. He joined Blackpool desperate for first-team football and scored twice against Nottingham Forest last week.
