Retailer JD Sports said on Tuesday it had appointed Deloitte as administrator for its loss-making outdoor clothing business that has been struggling with falling demand, and will begin a restructuring of the unit.

London-listed JD Sports said it had brought back the business, Go Outdoors, and all its assets from the administrator for 56.5 million pounds via a new subsidiary as part of a so-called pre-pack administration deal.
