The Magpies, according to the report, have agreed to a loan fee of Â£ 2.2, with a permanent signing option next summer for Â£ 12.9million.
Still, Kamara has decided to stay at Stade VÃ©lodrome for the time being, although his future is still uncertain with less than a year on his contract.
He made 121 appearances for the club, having made his first-team debut in 2016 at the age of 17.
Kamara has also represented France at the youth squad level but has yet to be capped for the senior squad.
This means Newcastle’s only major signing of the summer was the landing of Joe Willock from Arsenal
Versatile Kamara, who can play both defense and midfield, was also interesting for Wolves on deadline day.
This means Newcastle’s only major signing of the summer was to land Joe Willock from Arsenal for Â£ 22million.
They did, however, manage a late transfer for Mexico’s Under-23 international Santiago Munoz, who joins the club’s academy on an initial 18-month loan deal.
