Paul Hughes (born 19 April 1976 in Hammersmith) is a retired English footballer who played in midfield.

Hughes began his career with his local side, Chelsea, and started well, scoring on his debut against Derby County with an impressive solo effort. Thereafter, however, his career was stalled by injuries, successive managers' squad rotation policies and the signing of other midfielders like Roberto Di Matteo, Gustavo Poyet and Didier Deschamps.

Over the next three years he only featured in 24 more games for the club, and had loan spells with Stockport County, Crewe Alexandra and Norwich City (where he scored once against Swindon Town). Hughes joined Southampton, then managed by his old Chelsea manager Glenn Hoddle, on a free transfer in the summer of 2000, but left a year later having never played a game for the Saints. Hughes' next club was Luton Town, where he remained until May 2006, making 88 appearances and scoring seven goals for the club.
