The 24-year-old has been linked with a move to Greek club Panathinaikos to play under former Antwerp manager Laszlo Boloni.
The Cameroon international threatened to upset the club even further after posting on Instagram that he would turn up in a Beerschot shirt — another Antwerp rival.
However, he decided against this and posted an apology on the club’s official Twitter page on Tuesday.
“I sincerely apologise to the membership and the Antwerp supporters as a result of they’re magnificent and great followers who’ve all the time supported me,” he mentioned.
“If I reacted like that, it’s as a result of my head was elsewhere with the transfer, it wasn’t straightforward for me. I am so sorry for my actions.
“I will not neglect how my teammates and the technical employees have supported me within the dressing room since my arrival right here.
“I am prepared for the membership if the brand new coach wants me. I hope to be in entrance of the supporters very quickly on the pitch.”
Lamkel Ze has spent two years with Antwerp and has contributed 11 targets and 9 assists in all competitions.
Antwerp had been a part of Tottenham’s Europa League group and progressed into the knockout levels of the competitors, the place they’ll face Steven Gerrard’s Rangers.
