The 24 year-old striker originally departed Cwmbran in the summer for Welsh Premier League side Aberystwyth Town but returned to the club a month later, as he prepared for the season.
Bull, a Cwmbran Celtic academy product has enjoyed his time in the Gwent County area, playing for hometown team Blaenavon Blues before moving to Abertillery Bluebirds, Monmouth Town, Goytre and then returning to the Yellow and Blue of Cwmbran Celtic.
The club had already lost influential midfielder Chris Ham to English side Westfields, making this the second player this season to depart the club to ply their trade in the English pyramid system this season.
Bull’s 34 goals last season for Cwmbran Celtic helped lead Dean Morris’s men to promotion from the Welsh League Division Two. He leaves Cwmbran with 17 goals to his name this season.
Merthyr had a deadline of Thursday for registering a player for the remainder of the season and they have identified Welsh League hotshot Bull as a striker that can continue their promotion push after injuries to strikers Kayne McLaggon and Ryan Prosser to injury.
Lee Challenger will have to make do without Bull now in his first game in charge as permanent manager as his side face Caldicot Town on Saturday.
