When you look at the leg where it is broken, how does the diameter of the missing wood compare with the diameter of the leg? If you drill into the leg can you insert a dowel and glue to make a fresh tenon without loosing too much girth in the leg? The remaining wood should account for at least 1/2 of the total surface when viewed from the end in order to attempt this sort of repair. I use a slow cure epoxy for a strong permanent bond at the repair, and a wood glue in the original joint. If this isn't going to work let me know I have other options you may consider.
