The 30-year-old only joined Oosterpark outfit Groningen in the summer and has been a key figure for them this term.
RKC have always maintained an interest in a player who was on their books at the beginning of his career and made a move prior to Christmas.
However, with Groningen being under no pressure to sell due to Vrede being on a two-year contract, they demanded a sizeable transfer fee for his signature.
RKC were frightened off by Groningen's demands and it remains to be seen if they return to the negotiating table in January.
Vrede is currently overcoming a niggling injury but is expected to be fit for the resumption of the Eredivisie season in late January.
