Recently relegated Wednesday have seen something of an exodus of players since the appointment of Paul Jewell as manager, with Peter Atherton, Lee Briscoe, Ian Nolan and midfielder Niclas Alexandersson.
Gillespie looks certain to leave Ewood Park after it was made clear that he was surplus to requirements, but links to Scottish giants Rangers do not appear to have progressed and he is now seeking a new club.
Butterfield would cost around £800,000, a fee that the Hillsborough club are unlikely to be prepared to pay for the right back.
