Three seasons followed with Panathinaikos, with which they won the Greek championship in 2014, but also three Cups (2014-16).

In August 2016, he signed a one-year contract with Valencia, but a few months later, he was loaned to Aris, with whom he completed the 2016-17 season.

He returned to Spain and played in Andorra (2017-2018), while the following year he collaborated for the first time with coach Lykogiannis in Holargos. Their cooperation was harmonious and this was reflected in the numbers: 13.8 points, 5., 4 rebounds and 2.7 assists, Vlado Jankovic had on average that season.
