The 30-year-old has taken advantage of his Bosman status to sign a deal with the Oosterpark outfit.
Vrede has sealed a move from Greek outfit Iraklis, with Groningen beating off rival interest from RBC Roosendaal to sign the defender.
The defender will join Brian Pinas and Antoine van der Linden at Groningen next term, after signing a two-year deal.
Vrede, though, is not guaranteed to complete the move as his contract has a clause which states he can cancel the deal if Groningen are relegated.
Groningen still need a point to be safe from having to negotiate the play-offs, with Ron Jans` side set to face leaders PSV Eindhoven in their final game of the season on Thursday.
