The development follows a 2008 case in the Court of Arbitration for Sport - which FIFA lost - in which the court ruled that clubs were not obliged to release players.
FIFA said it would "maintain a watching brief" after French outfits Lorient and Le Mans and Gabonese side US Bitam all said they were refusing to release a player.
