Andrew John Hughes (born 2 January 1978 in Stockport, Greater Manchester) is an English footballer, currently playing for Leeds United.
Hughes began his career at Oldham Athletic making 44 appearances scoring once before joining Notts County, where he made 130 appearances scoring 18 times.
He joined Reading on 5 July 2001 on a three year deal, but Notts County and Reading failed to agree a transfer fee. The fee was later set at around £250,000 by a tribunal. Hughes went on to make 183 appearances, scoring 19 times. Towards the end of his time with the club, Hughes suffered from his versatility as he was often played out of position under Steve Coppell. His earlier seasons at Reading had seen him play in his preferred midfield role and he flourished, netting a particularly spectacular goal away to Wolves.
