The midfielder, 33, has been in talks during the summer on extending his current deal which expires at the end of the season.
“Gerrard's form and fitness last season means he will be hopeful of extending his career beyond that”
Liverpool skipper Gerrard is now poised to sign what is likely to be a new two-year deal, similar to the one he thrashed out in January 2012, before the club heads to Indonesia tomorrow for the first leg of a tour that also includes stops in Australia and Thailand.
That would take him through to his 35th birthday, but Gerrard's form and fitness last season means he will be hopeful of extending his distinguished career beyond that.
Gerrard will join in full training again this week after recovering from shoulder surgery and step up his preparations for his 16th senior campaign, when he will remain as important as ever.
He was absent as a precaution in Saturday's 4-0 friendly win at Preston
