A Scottish Premier League footballer has been arrested over an alleged fight in a London nightclub.

Hibernian goalkeeper Graham Stack, 30, was arrested on suspicion of causing actual bodily harm after a man in his 20s was treated in hospital.

It is understood the London-born player was arrested outside a club in Kingly Street at about 0230 GMT on Sunday.

He was questioned at a central London police station and bailed pending further inquiries.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: "A 30-year-old man was arrested at the scene on suspicion of ABH and taken into custody at a central police station.

"He was bailed pending further inquiries, returning in mid-January 2012.

"A man in his 20s suffering from facial injuries was taken to hospital and subsequently discharged."

Hibernian said they would not be issuing a statement on the case.

Stack started his career at Arsenal, and joined the Easter Road side in Edinburgh in the summer of 2009.
