KickOff.com has learnt that Golden Arrows are seeking to have the matter involving themselves and Clifton Miheso heard before a South African Federation arbitration panel.
Earlier in the year the Kenyan international alleged that he'd been forced to cancel his contract with the Premier Soccer League club at gun-point.
Miheso enlisted the South African Football Players Union to help him take the matter before FIFA with football's world governing body declaring that the South African arbitration body was unfit to adjudicate on disputes due to the compliance failures.
SAFPU spokesperson Vusi Mtimane confirmed that Abafana Bes'thende wish for the matter to be heard in South Africa but FIFA require that they furnish them with sufficient reasons as to why.
"Arrows are seeking with FIFA to have the case be heard before the South African Arbitration body," he told KickOff.com.
"However, FIFA has since written to Arrows [asking them] to specify reasons why the case should be heard before a local board. They have been given a period to respond."
