Kamara struck his first goal of the season that gave Fulham a share of the spoils after Michel Platini had opened the scoring for the home side.
And it was only yesterday that news broke of Newcastle wanting to take the striker on loan, but Hodgson says he still has a role to play at the club.
"Diomansy took the goal very well. We've see him do that so many times," said the boss.
"When he span away I was confident he would get behind the defence and compose himself. It still wasn't an easy finish - it was on his left foot as well.
"It's one of those goals where you think `open goal, he should score' - but I've seen many missed in my time. There's no truth in the stories he's going to Newcastle."
