Amber Turner and Dele Alli Snpachat

He was thought to be dating e-commerce model Ruby Mae, but Tottenham Hotspur star Dele Alli is reportedly getting close to The Only Way Is Essex star Amber Turner.

The 24-year-old reality television star recently split with co-star Dan Edgar on the ITVBe show, and has been pictured looking cosy with the 21-year-old English international on a recent night out.

Turner and her friends headed to Radio Rooftop Bar following a lavish brunch at London's M Restaurant, and were joined by Alli, according to The Sun.

The blonde star, wearing a glamorous beaded jacket, was seen sitting close to Alli who looked casual in ripped jeans in a Snapchat video which was filmed by a worse-for-wear friend.

The intoxicated friend with the camera repeatedly claimed that the group had ordered 50 mini burgers, and Turner could be seen laughing and joking with Alli in the background.

A source told the publication: "Dele and Amber are understood to have grown close."

In March 2016, Alli is said to have enjoyed a fling with former Towie star Ferne McCann.

But for the past two years, the footballer has been dating glamorous model Ruby Mae, 22, who is on the books of Boss Model Management in Manchester and has taken the online fashion world by storm, working for the likes of Missguided and Miss Pap. Though the pair have kept their relationship under wraps since last year as their fame has risen. They were however thought to still be an item.

Alli was first spotted with model Ruby in April 2016 when the couple were pictured holding hands and grinning from ear to ear on a date in London.

The loved-up couple have also been spotted on holiday several times at Ibiza and at a string of London dinner dates, but they haven't been pictured in public or on Instagram together since the summer.
