  • Player profile

    The Peterborough-born midfielder made his name at Southampton and Derby County before arriving in Leicester in 2008. Signing a three-and-a-half year deal in a £500,000 from Derby in the January transfer window, Oakley made his debut in a 2-0 derby victory against Coventry City, but he went on to suffer an injury before the end of the season and couldn't stop the Foxes suffering relegation to League One.

    He enjoyed better fortunes the following season, being handed the captain's armband and leading his men to promotion back to the Championship at the first time of asking, scoring eight goals in the process and leading by example. He also played a role the following season in helping the club to the play-offs but was not selected in the play-off defeat against Cardiff City.

    In the 2010-11 season Oakley handed the captain's armband over to Andy King but still played 36 competitive games in all competitions. However, at the start of the 2011-12 campaign, having made just two appearances in the League Cup, he decided to make a loan switch to Exeter City in search of more regular first-team action. His future at City since looked in doubt, having made almost 150 appearances for the club.
