Chairman Jenkins believes signing Lee Trundle on loan was an easy decision for manager Paulo Sousa to ease our problems.
The Swansea City boss didn't have a striker available for tomorrow's game before the double signing of Craig Beattie and Lee Trundle.
The Chairman said bringing Trundle back to the Liberty Stadium was a simple and quick move as cover for Stephen Dobbie and Gorka Pintado.
Jenkins told BBC Sport:
'I think that with the injuries and suspensions we've got we had to get a few players in.
'And I think that [signing Trundle until 1 January] was there to be done, just to help us over the next few months and at the moment that's all we're looking at.'
'I think that was an easy one, really, for our manager,'
'With the injuries and suspensions we've got it was a matter of quickly bringing in somebody to cover, especially over the next few weeks.
'And somebody like Lee obviously knows the players quite well and can settle in very, very quickly and can help us over the next few months.'
Jenkins says though that Craig Beattie was our main signing and someone that Paulo Sousa has been interested in for the last few weeks.
The West Brom striker breaks the £400,000 record fee we paid for Nathan Dyer and Ashley Williams respectively.
'We've been looking and looking to try and get a deal for a reasonably experienced target man, which we needed - somebody big and powerful to play up front.
'And that's what our manager wanted and at last, obviously, we're quite happy to get somebody in and let's hope Craig can do a great job for us.
'I think he'll give us what we've been lacking. I think the way we play - with the one central striker - to suit our formation needs somebody capable of holding the ball up and being strong there for us and I think he's proven that he can do that.
'We definitely knew that we needed to get a striker in, somebody with experience, but still somebody who can grow as well with the club... we feel Craig can do that.'
