Dani Dyer has sparked claims she’s dating West Ham’s Jarrod Bowen as the footballer was spotted leaving her home after reportedly staying at her house overnight.
The 2018 Love Island winner, 25, is reportedly dating the £18million West Ham forward, 24, after they struck up a friendship earlier this year.
The pair have grown much closer in recent weeks after spending more time together, according to The Sun.
Rumours: Dani Dyer, 25, is said to be dating West Ham’s Jarrod Bowen, 24, as the footballer was spotted leaving her home after reportedly staying at her house overnight
A source told the publication: ‘It is a very new relationship, but it’s lovely to see Dani beginning to move on and leaving all the heartache she’s suffered behind her.’
Pictures obtained by The Sun showed Jarrod leaving Dani’s Essex home last week wearing a grey Lanvin tracksuit and clutching a water bottle, his keys and what appeared to be a washbag.
The footballer, who previously played for Hereford United and Hull City, was reportedly then seen driving away from the property in his Mercedes.

Dani, who was wearing grey and pink fitness gear and had her golden tresses pulled back in a tight bun, was said to be seen leaving her house shortly afterwards.
The reported new relationship is said to have the support of Dani’s mother Joanne Mas, 44, and her father Danny, who is a lifelong West Ham fan.
MailOnline has contacted Dani and Jarrod’s representatives for comment.
It comes after Dani’s ex-boyfriend Sammy Kimmence is said to have become enraged by Dani’s close friendship with Jarrod.
Dani split from her ex-boyfriend Sammy in July after he was sentenced to three-and-a-half years behind bars for posing as an investor.
She reportedly has been left terrified after learning Sammy, who she shares her ten-month-old son Santiago with, asked his friend to spy on her while he serves time for scamming pensioners out of £34,000.

Dani said of the ordeal: ‘After all the awful things he did came out in court and we split up, I thought I could start to move on with my life with little Santi.
‘But this is just really horrible and scary. I have been left feeling furious, afraid and violated.’
In phone conversations from prison, Sammy revealed he had asked his pal to ‘keep an eye’ on Dani and was ‘not happy’ with her actions.
Sammy is serving time in prison for scamming pensioners Peter Martin, 91, and Peter Haynes, 81, out of £34,000 by befriending and tricking them.
Dani decided against going to the courthouse to see the sentencing of her baby’s father where he was jailed and received a 42-month-sentence at Portsmouth Crown Court.

Not only did he con the two pensioners, he convinced Dani the crimes were not serious so the reality star would stand by him.
But the reality star stopped sharing anything from their relationship when the truth of his crimes came to light, and immediately broke things off with him when she found out.
Since making the decision to embark on the journey of parenthood alone with Santiago, Dani has been surrounded by her family for support, with her actor father Danny joining her on holiday to celebrate her birthday.
Meanwhile, Sammy has to pay Mr Martin £3,926 – which will go to his estate because he has passed away – and Mr Hayne £1,173 within the next three months.

The rest will be paid as soon as he earns money once he is released from prison.
Dani recently revealed she would still ‘love to find happiness with someone new’ despite having two failed relationships in the last two years.
Sources told OK! Magazine that: ‘She’s always wanted that happy family dynamic so she’d love to find happiness with someone new.’

‘Dani needs to let the dust settle, but she would be open to meeting someone new,’ the source told the magazine.
Sammy will be absent from both Dani and baby Santiago’s lives as he serves time for his deceit.
And Dani’s father Danny was said to be relieved his daughter has split from the con artist.
The EastEnders actor and the rest of Dani’s family have said they ‘think it’s for the best’ and have told her ‘she will never be alone as a single mum’, according to Ok!.
A source told the publication: ‘Dani’s dad Danny and her whole family are relieved she’s walked away.
‘They think this is for the best. They’ve told her she’ll never be alone as a single mum as they’ll always help her to raise Santiago.’
The source added: ‘Dani knew Sammy’s crime was bad but everyone thinks she just buried her head in the sand about it and didn’t face up to the enormity of his crimes until he was sentenced.’
Meanwhile, a source revealed to the MailOnline that the heartbroken reality star is working on life as a single parent.

They said: ‘She is absolutely floored by what’s happened with Sammy. She knows she has to make massive changes in her life and she’s so distraught…
‘All she knows is that her baby boy Santiago is the only thing that matters now and she is trying to work out how best to look after him as a single parent.’
The source went on: ‘She needs time to think it through. Sammy completely downplayed the court case every step of the way’.
It has been revealed that she was misled over the severity of the crimes which saw Sammy groom pensioners to fund his lavish lifestyle.
The source said: ‘He led her to believe he hadn’t done anything too serious and that he would get a suspended sentence now she knows the full horror of the crime…
‘She is broken. She feels desperately sorry for the two men he scammed and whose lives he ruined.’
Speaking about how she is feeling now, they said: ‘She feels utterly stupid for ever believing him and she is totally overwhelmed…’
‘The little dream family she thought she had has been smashed apart and she is now trying to work out how best to pick up the pieces.’
