According to media reports, former Asda chair Archie Norman is among the bidders for health club chain Esporta.

The chain launched a formal auction process in mid-September, after receiving several approaches from rival companies. It is estimated to be worth around £460m.

The Times reports that Norman made a bid via his private equity vehicle Aurigo Management, which he launched earlier this year.

However, analysts back Whitbread – which already owns the David Lloyd chain – to acquire Esporta.

Esporta owns and operates 54 clubs in the UK. Details:
