Schultz, 23, a left-armer who is expected to tour England with South Africa this summer, would replace Richie Richardson in 1995, when the West Indies are touring.
Yorkshire, having ditched their 'Yorkshire-born' policy, in order to secure a foreign fast bowler, have been unable to acquire such a player. Australia's Craig McDermott pulled out through injury in 1992 and was replaced by the Indian batsman, Sachin Tendulkar, while the West Indians, Anderson Cummins and Kenneth Benjamin, were not deemed big enough names by Yorkshire Television, who provide the overseas player sponsorship.
Schultz made his Test debut against India a year ago, but is still recovering from a knee operation.
