Speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show, Jenkins spoke about the need to keep onto Neil Tailor and how he plans on keeping Swansea City in the top flight by continuing to play attractive, attacking football and plans to increase the stadium capacity through success.
Speaking about how well the season tickets have sold:
'yeah, they've gone very well, we've sold out of every seat we could sell. We've kept a few back for match-day sales and that's really encouraging.
We hope we can continue this and stay in the Premiership now and perhaps even enhance our stadium and get more seats in'
When asked about the Neil Taylor situation he responded by saying:
"We bought Neil in last year from Wrexham in the Conference and he`s done very well in the Championship in his first season.
"I believe the time is wrong for him to move on at the moment though.
I wouldn`t deprive any player of moving on if he felt it was the right time for the club and the player, that`s part and parcel of the game these days.
"He`s such a young lad though and it`s about playing games.
'You`d think that he`s got more chance of playing games in the Premier League for us than trying to compete for a place at Newcastle.
"As things stand though we`ve turned down their initial offer so we`ll go from there."
You get the feeling though, that until Neil Taylor has a new contract, him leaving the Liberty Stadium still remains a possibility even with Newcastle United appearing to cool interest in the player.
Ambitious and up-beat Huw Jenkins has a long term plan and that ambition is surely filtering its way down through the spine of the club, which can only impress the fans.
