The midfielder is set to turn his back on Wimbledon, and Preston appear to have beaten off competition from Premiership new boys Birmingham and West Brom to bring him to Deepdale on a free transfer.
Ainsworth spent three seasons at Preston earlier in his career and ended last term on loan at Deepdale.
The 29-year-old appeared flattered by offers from The Premiership, but the pull of Deepdale seemed too strong.
He said: "I had offers to play in The Premiership but Preston has always been my club and my heart has always been there."
