Ben Foden has reportedly moved on with another Irish woman in New York

"They have been able to get to know each other away from prying eyes."

Rugby player Ben Foden has been dating an Irish woman since his move to New York City, according to a new report.

Ben, whose marriage to Saturdays singer Una Healy ended last summer, is seeing a woman named Miriam Murphy as he gets into the swing of life in the Big Apple, reports The Sun.

"Ben and Miriam have grown very close after meeting through mutual friends," a source told the publication.

“They have been able to get to know each other in New York away from prying eyes and have enjoyed going to bars, playing beer pong and doing workouts together at the gym.

“Miriam even cheered Ben on at one of his rugby matches.

"Ben has always said he wanted to have a bit of fun after his divorce and he’s definitely been doing that in New York.”

The Englishman early this year admitted that he cheated on Una while they were married.

"At the moment anything that’s published about me is never very good and pretty rightly so, because I was the one who committed adultery," he said.

“But at the same time, it wasn’t the only reason for our divorce to go through.

"It’s not ideal but we’re very amicable, we’re getting through it."

Una meanwhile has been dating former Limerick hurler David Breen for several months.
