The Swans celebrated winning the title after their home game against Yeovil on April 19, but the Football League refused to present them with the trophy ahead of last weekend´s home clash with Leyton Orient in case United´s appeal was successful.
But an arbitration panel announced on Thursday they had rejected the appeal, meaning the Swans are confirmed as the champions and Jenkins told Sky Sports News: "It´s what was expected and I´m pleased with that. No disrespect to Leeds or their supporters, but I think the credibility of the Football League was at stake."
