Jenkins was handed his senior debut by head coach Marcelo Bielsa last season in the FA Cup and has now penned an improved three-year deal at Elland Road, which will run until the summer of 2024.

United have also recently handed young players Charlie Cresswell - who was handed a Premier League bow against West Ham at the weekend - and Liam McCarron new deals in LS11 in recent weeks with an eye on the future.

Jenkins could be called into EFL Trophy action on Tuesday night at Oldham Athletic. The Whites Under-23s also travel to face Leicester City at the King Power stadium on Friday evening.
