That is probably a sucker off of the root crown and has no roots of it's own. aIf it was a seedling, you could just dig up and re-plant with relative certainty of a successful transplant. But with a sucker, you will have to cut it and treat it as a cutting to be rooted. There is maybe a 50/50 chance at best that it will take.
