Talking Oakley out of retirement plans?
Having left Leicester earlier in the summer Matt Oakley had contemplated retirement, but is currently training with Exeter.
The vastly experienced midfielder was a former teammate of Grecians manager Paul Tisdale at Southampton so Tisdale has used this angle to lure him to Devon and is now hoping he can tempt Oakley to play on for at least one more season.
If Oakley has the motivation to continue his playing career he would be a valuable asset to Exeter that much is certain.
