The Spurs player, 22, is said to be enjoying single life after calling it a day with his model ex Ruby Mae, and has apparently been texting Megan, 26, after meeting her in a club at the weekend.

A source told The Sun: “Dele told Ruby it wasn’t working. She’s devastated and fought to stay together but his mind is made up.

“It wasn’t long before he started enjoying his newfound single status — partying at Tape on Saturday night where he met Megan for the first time.”

Megan split from Wes, 20, after a tumultuous few weeks in which she accused his Dancing On Ice skating partner Vanessa Bauer of purposely breaking up with her boyfriend in order to stir up rumours of a romance with Wes.

Taking to her Instagram stories in January, Megan wrote: “Love that you decide to announce your breakup with your boyfriend on the night of your first performance with my boyfriend.

“You’ve never reached out to me once on invited me to watch you train, it pained you to introduce yourself to me last night you didn’t even look me in the eye LOL.”

After their split, Megan claimed that Wes 'didn't love her' in an explosive interview.

She told OK! magazine: "Our ambitions and goals in life are very different - Wes is younger than me and wrapped up in the fame bubble - but I still love him, which is why it hurts so much.

"I fought and fought and fought for Wes but he doesn't love me back."

She also slammed the Dancing On Ice producers for stirring up problems in her relationship.

"The fact that the producers deliberately stirred things up by partnering Wes with the youngest, hottest girl annoyed me."
