(Adds T-Mobile US, NorthStar Realty Finance, E.ON, Eskom)

Aug 5 (Reuters) - The following bids, mergers, acquisitions and disposals were reported by 2000 GMT on Tuesday:

** T-Mobile US is planning on rejecting French telecom firm Iliad's $15 billion offer for the carrier because its parent company, Deutsche Telekom, views the offer as too low, the Financial Times reported, citing two people with knowledge of the situation.

** Mexico's Mexichem said it had signed a deal to buy Germany-based Vestolit, a maker of durable plastics used for window floorings and pipes, for 219 million euros ($292.7 million).

** NorthStar Realty Finance Corp said it would buy Griffin-American Healthcare REIT II Inc for $3.35 billion as it looks to take advantage of rising demand for senior-care facilities in a consolidating healthcare real estate sector.
