Veiga, who made a single pre-season appearance for Town against neighbours Harrogate Railway in the 2009/10 campaign, started his career at Benfica before moves to FC Alverca, Levente, Real Valladoid, CF Estrela da Amadora and SC Olhanense.
He moved to England in time for the 2006/07 season and hooked up with Tamworth, Atherstone Town, Hereford United and Macclesfield Town.
He has also represented his country, Cape Verde, in over a dozen matches.
Meanwhile, Conference Premier side Mansfield Town have allowed Paul Bolland to come back to Harrogate on a season-long loan.
Originally on the books of home-town club Bradford City, Bolland made a total of fourteen appearances before a £75,000 move to Notts County happened.
He quickly became established in the heart of the County defence and seven seasons later he had made 193 appearances, scoring seven goals.
The year 2005 saw Bolland move to Grimsby Town where he spent three seasons making 138 appearances. On the move again, he joined Macclesfield Town in 2009 and quickly became a fans` favourite playing sixty-six games.
Refusing a new deal at Macclesfield, Bolland joined current club Mansfield in 2011 and has, so far, made a dozen appearances.
Bolland, who made nineteen appearances whilst on loan with Harrogate last season, has been handed the captain`s armband for the forthcoming season.
