Butler is thought to be undergoing a medical at Bramall Lane after leaving Walsall earlier this month.
The 30-year-old is available on a free transfer after turning down a new deal at Walsall.
Butler joined Walsall in November 2010 and established himself as one of the best defenders in League One during his time at the club.
A number of clubs are thought to have shown an interest in Butler, but Sheffield United are in pole position to land the former Huddersfield stopper.
