The City Reds, whose takeover by millionaire racehorse owner Marwan Koukash is set to be confirmed at a press conference on Thursday, have taken on former Castleford utility back Ryan McGoldrick and signed Warrington winger Rhys Williams on a month's loan.
McGoldrick, 32, had a brief spell at Hull towards the end of last season after being released by Castleford but was not offered a new contract and joins Salford as a free agent.
"He'll be very useful for the youngsters at our club," said Veivers. "He's a quality player who can fill a number of positions."
Wales international Williams, 23, spent two months on loan to Castleford last season before returning to the Wolves, for whom he recently signed a new two-year contract.
McGoldrick and Williams have been named in Veivers' initial 19-man squad, along with 20-year-old full-back Jack Murphy, who has joined Salford on a month's loan from Wigan, and former St Helens second rower Andrew Dixon, who will also make his Reds debut.
But former Wigan centre Martin Gleeson, who has agreed a two-year contract with Salford, will miss out on reunion with his old club after picking up a calf injury in training.
