Two men have been arrested on suspicion of the murder of footballer Cody Fisher, who was stabbed to death at a nightclub in Birmingham on Boxing Day.
West Midlands Police confirmed the pair were taken into custody in connection with the killing of the 23-year-old on Wednesday.
A 22-year-old was held at an address in Birmingham city centre just after midnight and a 21-year-old was detained in London.
They will be questioned on suspicion of the murder of Mr Fisher, who was stabbed on the dance floor of the Crane nightclub on Adderley Street just before midnight on Boxing Day, police said.
Detective Chief Inspector Ian Ingram, from West Midlands Police, said: “We’re making good progress in our investigation and are building a better picture of what happened.
“We’ve been really pleased with the response from the public and have already had a number of witness accounts and images sent through, which will help with our investigation.
“It’s vital that we hear from everybody who saw any part of what happened that night – no matter how insignificant they think it might be.
“Cody’s family and friends are devastated by what happened, and we’ll continue to work to bring them answers.”
