Salford coach Phil Veivers is on the hunt for a full back and two new half-backs after their season ended in defeat against Wakefield on Saturday.
It leaves Veivers with a tough job on his hands to find a number of new playmakers ahead of the 2013 season, having ended the current campaign with seven successive losses.
He told the club’s official website: “We’re desperate for it. There’s some bodies that we need to bring in.
“We’re losing our one, six and seven and that’s the spine of your team. It would be great to try and fill these empty positions.”
Details of financial strife at Salford emerged at the weekend, with reports that the club has taken out a loan of £1m from Salford Council.
They were forced to move their final home game of the season to Leigh Sports Village due to a clash with co-tenants Sale Sharks, who have at least halved the rent the Reds were paying on their new home, which they moved in to at the start of 2012.
