Advice and Plant ID needed

My girlfriend and I have recently moved into a new (old) house with a nice sized garden. I have recently planted several fruit trees (cherry, mirabelle, pear and apple) and have inherited a nice big old bramley apple tree and plum tree which both need some pruning.
Down amongst the trees I am planning to leave it very natural, but before that the brambles, nettles, doc, ivy and russian vine which have been locked in an arms race have had to be removed.
So, during clearing everything, I found a small plant which looked out of place, so I've left it in as I want to leave everything that self seeds (which are not weeds) alone.
So does anyone know what this plant is, and should I leave it in?

Looks like one of the perennial cornflowers to me.
When you don't even know who's in the team
Agree punkdoc. The bud pretty much confirms it I think.
Certainly looks very like my Centaurea Montana.
Yes def a centaurea. I like them, pretty blue/purple flowers, but slugs like them too!
Brilliant! It's staying.
