FIFA are looking into allegations Clifton Miheso was forced to terminate his contract with former club Golden Arrows at gunpoint in January.
Miheso, with support from the SAFPU, turned to FIFA for their intervention on the matter after growing dissatisfied with SAFA's response to the claims.
FIFPro released a statement, part of which reads: 'FIFA is looking into an attempt by Golden Arrows to have the case of Clifton Miheso -- the Kenyan player pressured into quitting the club by two gunmen -- heard by a South African federation arbitration panel.
'Normally, disputes with an international dimension are heard by a FIFA arbitration panel, which is what 24-year-old Miheso has requested.
'The South African arbitration body has on more than one occasion been declared unfit to adjudicate on disputes for not complying with FIFA requirements.
'FIFA has written to Durban-based Golden Arrows to provide more information on why it is requesting that the dispute should be overseen by the national body.'
The Kenyan midfielder joined Zambian club Buildicon FC on a one-year deal in March.
