The following season, he won another trophy with the club when they beat another Croatian club Hajduk Split during the Croatian Supercup. He made a total of 14 appearances for the club before he was wooed by an Italian club Roma at the end of the season.

The Dinamo board initially refused to release Tin Jedvaj to Roma but in July 2013, it was confirmed that the defender had signed with the Italian side. He made his debut for the club in December 2013, coming in as a substitute in the 83rd minute in a match against Genoa. The game ended in a 4-0 win.  His first starting debut was also against Genoa but this time it was in the last round of the Serie A season, and they, unfortunately, lost the match to Genoa.

These were Jedvaj’s only two appearances for the whole of the 2013–14 season, as he was benched 33 times. In June 2014, German football club Bayer Leverkusen announced they have reached an agreement with all parties involved for Jedvaj to join the club on loan until the end of the 2015–16 season.

During his debut for Bayer, which was the club’s first official match for the season, Tin played all 90 minutes against Alemannia Waldalgesheim. The match ended in a 6-0 win. About a week later, he made his debut with the German side at UEFA Champions League. He came in as a substitute for Giulio Donati in the 46th minute, the match also ended in a 2–3 away victory over Copenhagen.

Tin Jedvaj subsequently made his Bundesliga debut in a match against Borussia Dortmund. His first goal for the club was in the second game of the season which was against Hertha BSC. His goal which came in the 50th minute was Bayer’s first goal in the game which eventually ended in a 4–2 home win. This was followed by a powerful curving goal which he scored in a match against Werder Bremen, giving his club a 1–0 lead. Jedvaj would later help Son Heung-min with the goal that tied the game with a 3–3 draw.
