Tree Purple leaves - ID help

Bridgwater, United Kingdom

This tree self seeded in the middle of my overgrown garden.

It's about 1.5 metres tall so far.

The 4th images are the new leaves.

I'm based in the UK.

Any help would be gratefully received. I'm sure whether to move it or if it's going to turn into a beast of a tree that blocks a lot of light.

Thanks
Elly

Probably a Purpleleaf Plum seedling - Prunus cerasifera or something remarkably similar.

It wants to be a small tree, likely in the 5 - 8 m range.
