Hawaii-based Sam Worthington is expected to arrive in Sydney as soon as today to rendezvous with new love interest Lara Bingle.

Rumours of a budding romance between the model and the Avatar star emerged after they were spied together in New York on September 28.

"It is too early to say its serious but Sam is definitely coming to Sydney this week and will be catching up with Lara," said a source close to the Hollywood actor. "They had a good connection and he really likes her."

The pair last saw each other less than two weeks ago, attending the Cotton On Foundation's Global Citizen Concert headlined by Bono, Kings of Leon, Stevie Wonder and Alicia Keys at Central Park.

Bingle is one of the brand's local ambassadors and was in the US shooting a campaign.

She and Worthington attended the concert with a bunch of celeb mates including Natalie Imbruglia, model Erin Heatherton, Clint Eastwood's son, Scott, and fashion commentator Hilary Kerr.

Observers tell Confidential "sparks flew" during the concert and the pair were seen cosying up together.

The pair were then photographed spending time together taking a stroll around the tourist sighs of the Big Apple.

But Bingle's management refused to comment and sources close to the model say they're "simply friends".
