Abstract
Elastic $\eta d$-scattering is considered within the Alt-Grassberger-Sandhas (AGS) formalism for various $\eta N$ input data. A three-body resonant state is found close to the $\eta d$ threshold. This resonance is sustained for different choices of the two-body $\eta N$-scattering length $a_{\eta N}$. The position of the resonance moves towards the $\eta d$ threshold when ${\rm Re\,}a_{\eta N}$ is increased, and turns into a quasi-bound state at ${\rm Re\,}a_{\eta N}\sim$ 0.7-0.8fm
