Lee is keen to bolster his squad as he looks to help the side out of their current slump and made an enquiry for Richardson.
United rejected the enquiry for the 19-year-old winger to go out on loan and Lee will turn his attentions to O'Neil, who enjoyed a successful spell at the Bescot Stadium earlier in the season.
"I've inquired about Richardson," said Lee. "He's got pace and skill and is a player I admire. But they are not prepared to let him out on loan.
"Gary O'Neil did the job for us for a while and, although he didn't score, he did brilliantly.
"He is injured at the moment but I would be interested in taking him back. We have some quality players in midfield - I'm trying to get some legs in around them."
