We study the interaction of two D∗ and a K̄∗ by using the fixed center approximation to the Faddeev equations to search for bound states of the three-body system. Since the D∗D∗ interaction is attractive and gives a bound state, and so is the case of the D∗K̄∗ interaction, where the JP=0+ bound state is identified with the X0(2900), the D∗D∗K̄∗ system leads to manifestly exotic bound states with ccs open quarks. We obtain bound states of isospin I=1/2, negative parity and total spin J=0, 1, 2. For J=0 we obtain one state, and for J=1, 2 we obtain two states in each case. The binding energies range from 56 to 152 MeV and the widths from 80 to 100 MeV.
