Matthew "Matt" Oakley (born 17 August 1977) is an English professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for Exeter City in League Two.

His previous club was then Championship side Leicester City where he was the team captain from 2008 to 2011. He had previously played for Southampton and Derby County.

Oakley played for Southampton for over a decade, including their defeat to Arsenal in the 2003 FA Cup Final. However, a proneness to injury cost him nearly two years of football, and he left the club after being offered only a one-year contract. At Derby County, he captained the club to promotion via the Championship play-offs in 2007. After one-and-a-half years at Pride Park, Oakley signed for Leicester City, but could not prevent their relegation to League One. He enjoyed an injury-free season when he captained the team to promotion as league winners at the first attempt.
