On June 14, 2016, D.C. United signed Durkin, making him the sixth homegrown player in D.C. United history and the fifth-youngest homegrown signing in the history of the league (16 years, 127 days). Durkin debuted for D.C. United on June 15, 2016, during a Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup fourth round tournament fixture, going 86 minutes against the Fort Lauderdale Strikers.

On March 3, 2018, Durkin made his Major League Soccer debut against Orlando City, coming on in the 73rd minute for Yamil Asad. Just a few weeks later on March 24, 2018, Durkin made his first professional start for United, going the entire 90 minutes in a 3–1 loss against Columbus Crew.

He was ranked #14 in MLSsoccer.com's 2018 22-Under-22 Rankings which identifies the league's top young talents.

On April 13, 2019, Durkin scored his first MLS goal in a start against the Colorado Rapids.

Sint-Truiden
On August 30, 2019, Durkin officially joined Belgian First Division A side Sint-Truiden on a loan that lasts until June 2020. Durkin debuted for Sint-Truiden in a 2–0 win against Oud-Heverlee Leuven in the Belgian Cup on September 25, 2019.

Durkin earned his first Belgian Pro League start for Sint-Truiden in a 2–1 loss against Club Brugge KV on December 7, 2019. Durkin scored his first goal for Sint-Truiden on February 8, 2020, in a 5–2 win over KAS Eupen. On May 7, 2020, Durkin's move to Sint-Truiden was made permanent for a reported transfer fee of $1.1 million.

Return to D.C. United
On March 24, 2022, Durkin returned to D.C. United. Houston Dynamo selected his rights with the second spot in the Allocation Order and traded those rights to United in exchange for $325,000 in General Allocation Money as well as the number ten allocation slot. United also paid a reported fee of $600,000 to bring him back to the United States.

Durkin played for the U.S. Under-17 team at the 2017 CONCACAF U-17 Championship and the 2017 FIFA U-17 World Cup. Prior to the World Cup, Durkin wore the captain's armband for a number of friendly matches as well as in the group stage match against El Salvador in the CONCACAF Championship. Durkin scored his first goal for the US Under-17 team in a group stage match against Jamaica, and again in the U-17 World Cup against the host country of India.

Durkin was named to the roster of the US men's national Under-20 soccer team during the first-ever U.S. Soccer Men’s YNT Summit Camp in Lakewood Ranch, Florida from January 2–11, 2018.
