According to the News Of The World, Lloyd spent the night with Dutch winger Ryan Babel at London's Mayfair last week.
"Following five failed flings with footballers, Danielle vowed never again," said a source. "But she just can't help herself, she finds the sport dead sexy.
"Danielle first met Ryan when she was home in Liverpool a while back and was attracted to his shy side. He's the strong silent type and she liked that."
The source continued: "They'd obviously planned to get together because Danielle was hanging around the hotel bar with all of us waiting for something to happen. She looked a bit nervous and was necking back the champagne.
"Then when Ryan turned up, they disappeared off to his room straight away."
Lloyd's previous sports star lovers are rumoured to include Jermain Defoe, Teddy Sherringham, Marcus Bent, Armand Traore and Gerard Pique.
