Schalkwyk who courted controversy during his brief stay in Cape Town claims Santos owe him money but is more concerned about getting his clearance from the club that was relegated from the PSL last season.
Though the midfield-cum-striker maintains he wants his clearance KickOff.com has gathered that he had actually signed an 18 month contract which expires next year when he joined in January.
"I am still waiting for my clearance from Santos because three months ago we had an agreement that I will leave which is why I came home," says Schalkwyk.
"But right now I don't know if they will give me my clearance because they are no longer answering my calls plus they haven't paid me for two months. When I left before the season ended we had agreed that I go and I actually told them that I am leaving because I couldn't take this thing of not playing anymore. I even spoke to Edries Burton before I left," claims Schalkwyk.
"I am supposed to be a free agent by now. With what has been happening I have now taken my case to the Players' Union who are helping me sort this out and I hope this gets sorted out in the next two weeks. I have to fight for my cause because I still want to play football," he says.
The 30 year-old has recently trained with former team Free State Stars.
"I trained with them for a week but stopped because I needed to get this thing of my sorted out first. Once I have my clearance I will know what happens next," says Schalkwyk.
Edries Burton, the Santos COO confirms that Schalkwyk is still their player but was rather elusive and concise when questioned further.
"Let us talk more on Schalkwyk towards end of next week," says Burton.
