The keeper said last week how frustrated he had become at being left on the sidelines by Blades boss Neil Warnock and claimed he was looking to return to his Dutch home.
RBC were alerted to his availability and made an approach when learning that number one Maikel Aerts would miss the remainder of the season with a shoulder injury.
De Vogt has signed a deal that ties him to RBC until the end of the season, and will battle with Wim de Ron for the first-team place.
Shortly before moving, de Vogt revealed that his move is the culmination of a long-term chase by RBC.
He said: "They wanted me before but I chose United and going there is a good move for me."
De Vogt has not ruled out the prospect of returning to England again, adding: "I have signed until the summer and then I start afresh looking for a permanent club.
"I don't mind which country, it could even be back in England."
The one drawback for de Vogt is that RBC are the bitter rivals of his former club NAC Breda.
Meanwhile, Blades boss Neil Warnock has decided not to pursue his interest in French defender Alex Jeannin, after handing the former Darlington and Troyes man a trial at Bramall Lane this week.
However, Warnock was more optimistic about Dutch midfielder Marcel Cas, who has been training with the club for the last three weeks following his release from Division Two side Notts County.
The midfielder's ability to play in a number of positions in defence and midfield is being seen by Warnock as a useful cover option for his squad.
