Bony moved from Vitesse Arnhem last month.
Jenkins, quoted by the South Wales Evening Post speaking at a fans forum, said: "This summer was the first time where we agreed to spend that money on one player, and personally I don't like the idea of doing it.
"I don't think it's a great thing for our club to be doing season after season.
"Yes, now and again for the right player at the right time, it might be an option.
"But I think we all know our level should be a bit below that.
"We should be finding players who are suitable to us and who arrive for figures that are easier to sleep with.
"Signing Wilfried Bony was a big thing for us, but I would not like to keep paying fees like that all the time."
