Is This Chair Fixable?

Is This Chair Fixable?

Q: When my boyfriend and I moved into our new apartment we bought these adorable chairs for our kitchen table at a yard sale. Unfortunately, one of them broke after only a few weeks of use…

It appears that the wood has split a bit around where the leg screws into it. I've looked online for a tutorial about fixing it, but have found nothing that addresses our particular problem. It seems as though it may be more serious than just sanding and wood glue. I'm worried that it might not be fixable. Any advice would be much appreciated!
