The Yorkshire Evening Post cite personal terms as the issue, however, and claim the goalkeeper was granted permission by Leeds to undergo a medical on Wednesday.
Staying in the Championship, the Daily Mirror report that Norwich City defender Christoph Zimmermann is on Bournemouth's list of alternatives should they fail to agree a deal for Chris Mepham of Brentford.
It is claimed the London side have already turned down a £5.5 million offer.
A number of Championship sides are said to have enquired about Famewo, but Norwich appear to have made the first move, allegedly offering £250,000 plus add-ons for the 19-year-old.
Poyet, who also managed Sunderland and was assistant to Dennis Wise at Leeds, never worked with the 33-year-old, however.
And according to the same source, Huddersfield Town defender Micheal Hefele is wanted by a number of Championship clubs on loan.
