Nakon toga slede epizode u Španiji i Estoniji, gde je nosio opremu Saragose, el Olivara i Tartua. Od 2013. Do 2016. Igrao je u Severnoj Makedoniji za Kumanovo (U dva navrata), Kožuv i skopski MZT, sa kojim je učestvovao u Jadranskoj ligi. 🐍Dres makedonskog kluba zamenio je za Partizanov, a u sezoni 2016/17 saigrač mu je bio upravo sadašnji trener, Branislav Ratkovica. U Mornaru je bio neizostavna karika, a ovu sezonu započeo je u hrvatskom Zadru. Tu se nije dugo zadržao, pa je prešao u Lovćen sa Cetinja, odakle stiže u Valjevo. 🏀Važi za sjajnog rim protektora i generalno mu je odbrana jača strana, a u napadu donosi neku novu širinu, jer pored osnovnih uloga koje obavlja jedna petica, vrlo dobro vidi teren i ume da razigrava saigrače. 🐍Potpisao je otvoreni govor sa klubom, a pravo nastupa stiče tek posle utakmice sa Dinamikom. Datum rođenja: 8.6.1989. Mesto: Beograd Pozicija: Centar Visina: 2.13 m Uroše, dobro došao u Valjevo! 🍀"".
