In September 2021, Jenkins signed a new three-year deal keeping him at Leeds until the Summer of 2024.
The central midfielder spent the 2022/23 season on loan at League Two side Salford City where he scored on his debut in a 2-1 win over Liverpool under-21s in the EFL Trophy. Jenkins made 11 appearances in all competitions for the Ammies as they reached the League Two playoffs, losing to Stockport County in the semi-finals. In September 2023, Jenkins joined National League North side Scunthorpe United on loan until January where he made nine appearances.
